It's been an unusual but exceptional Festival. Above all for the great variety, we had in our lineup. For almost 2 weeks, the 6th International Online Web Fest has celebrated our reunion with the independent moviemakers as a great international event full of new discoveries and fantastic emerging talents.

The web series "Shakespeare Republic: #AllTheWebsAStage won the top prize at the 6th IOWF Awards, which fulfilled many expectations since it was nominated six times, even if the most nominated in 2020 was the Canadian web series "Dominos". But the most nominated web series’s director Zoe Pelchat Ouellet confirmed the supremacy of women directors at International Online Web Fest, in fact, she's been the seventh woman director awarded in a row.

Focused on the discovery of emerging filmmakers, the 2021 "Pablo Cedrón" Award has offered five projects in its competition. Two of them were short films that competed as well for the "Best Short Film".

The most nominated project was Shakespeare Republic: #AllTheWebsAStage (The Lockdown Chronicles) web series.

In our discussions, there were two things we constantly saying: "This story is very intense" and "this story is so hilarious but true". 

Many of the candidates are very passionate and many of the other projects are talking about things that are hard to talk about.

VISIONS OF A VIVID LIFE (Web Series) 

written by Levi Eddie ALUEDE

Pablo Cedrón dedicated his life to various trades: He was a guide of the Los Glaciares National Park, an horseback riding guide, an actor, a scriptwriter, and he also worked in the fields. 

He lived eight years in Paris where he also worked in gastronomy, painting of houses, manufacture of hair fixative, carpentry. Many of these activities constitute the subjects that he chose to paint at the end of 2009.

In 2015 he wrote and played "The Romans" (Los Romanos), an Argentine black comedy series, directed by Andrés Cedrón and produced by Martín Lavini (Dontask). After the Series won as "Best Screenplay" and "Best Foreign Web a series" at International Online Web Fest, received also several awards and nominations in other international festivals and it premiered on April 25, 2017 on Cine.ar/play and on July 1, 2017 on the Turner group's cable television channel I.Sat.

Pablo cedrón died in 2017 at 59 years old. He gave life to more than 100 characters between the cinema ("Felicidades", "El aura", "The other brother") and TV ("Cha cha cha", Campeones de la vida", "Sos mi hombre"). His characters were nothing more than well-assembled and republished fragments of an intense and adventurous biography.

LONDON - The 2020 edition of the International Online Web Fest will be postponed until July because of the coronavirus pandemic, organizers said on Tuesday. 

In March, it was already clear that the pandemic was beginning to hit the UK and whatever organizers thought they might be able to do, so they had to rethink. 

There were three possible scenarios: 1) in which the pandemic would have eased and so the Annual LIVE event in Knightsbridge, London, could be confirmed; 2) in which we wouldn't be fully out the other side but we could still have a mixture of London and online experience; 3) at the end the last scenario was, the pandemic is still furious, and all we could do, it was to build a festival platform.

 

"Then we tried to do that, but things continue to slide up and down, and we had several issues with our staff for health reasons" organizers said - "That's why we decided to postpone the 2020 edition to July 2021".
