Help us celebrate the announcement of the Official Selection for the fourth edition of Australia’s international web series festival. A total of 50 of the best web series from Australia and around the world will be screened at this year’s festival. Additionally, like last year, we will also be selecting a number of local series for a special “Spotlight” event that will take place the day before the official program kicks off. 

Be the first to hear about our international and Australian guests who will be attending the Festival, our Industry Development Day and other program highlights.

The event is free, but strictly RSVP via EventBrite, as there are limited tickets available. Complimentary drink on arrival and light catering provided.

The festival itself will take place 1-3 July 2016, with the “Spotlight” event on 30 June. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”4750″ alignment=”” animation=”Fade In”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][divider line_type=”Full Width Line”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][heading]

Web Series IRL – Networking Event

[/heading][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”in_container” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” overlay_strength=”0.3″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]IRL is a Melbourne based event that is held once a month and screens local web series. It aims to provide a community and platform for emerging creators.

After making their own web series, i can’t even., Alyce and Hayley began meeting and being contacted by other online creators, many of whom were struggling to find others like them. Noticing the isolation that is inherent when working online, Alyce and Hayley realised there was a real need for a sense of community. IRL is a way for people interested or already established in web series to meet and connect, building a network of like-minded creators.

When: 6:30-8pm, THURSDAY, April 21
Where: Loop Project Space & Bar – 23 Meyers Place, Melbourne 3000
