DC Web Series Festival - 1st Annual


The Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse and 20/20 Productions present the 1st Annual Washington D.C. Web Series Festival on April 6! Come experience new local talent and celebrate an emerging artform in the wild west of film: the Web Series. A newly emerging medium, web series consist of a series of videos that are released on the Internet as web television. The MISSION of this festival is to Entertain, Educate and Promote this new artform. Co-hosted by accomplished comedian, Dan Levy, and acclaimed D.C. filmmaker, Otessa Ghadar, the night will be full of laughter and industry insight.

As the first D.C.-based web series production and the first theater venue in the area to screen web series, 20/20 Productions and Arlington Drafthouse want to put Washington, D.C. on the web-entertainment map. For the 1st Annual Festival, we have curated a number of web series to feature across many genres: comedy, drama, horror, soap opera, etc. We will use this first festival as a launching pad in anticipation of full-blown web series festivals to highlight the best of the web over the years to come. We encourage any and all web series creators to get involved. Please contact us at reply@twentytwentyproductions.com.

Otessa Ghadar, founder and president of 20/20 Productions, created the hit drama web series, "Orange Juice in Bishop's Garden" in 2007. It was recently screened at the OUTlander Project at SXSW, Dinah Shore, LA Web Fest, and has won numerous web series awards, and will be one of the web series featured during the festival. Also being featured is the comedic series, "Long Distance Relationship," created by comedian and acclaimed web series producer, Dan Levy, who has had appearances on Comedy Central, HBO, Chelsea Lately. Other web series and trailers for upcoming talents will also be screened.

Otessa and Dan will take part in a Q&A session about their experience in the web series industry. In particular, Otessa will touch upon how "Orange Juice in Bishops Garden" has gone global and gained viewership in over 140 countries around the world and how she actively caters to her viewers by adding sub-titles in French, German, etc. Accompanied by live music, drinks, and good company, the 1st Annual D.C. Web Series Festival promises to set a precedent for quality entertainment and an evening of fun!
