LAWEBFEST, The Los Angeles Web Series Festival, more commonly known as the LA Web Series Festival, is a web series festival based in Los Angeles, California. It was founded in 2009 by Michael Ajakwe Jr, an Emmy Award Winning writer, and was one of the first web series-based events; Filmmaker Magazine called it "the granddaddy of all webfests."
The 1st LAWEBFEST took place in March 2010 at a 99 seat theatre, Stage 52. Since then the venue has been at the Hilton Universal City Hotel in Universal City, Warner Brothers Studios and Sony Studios.
Our goals for 2023 are to expand the festival so it can become a viable provider of quality content on an international scale. Our intention is to create a place that nurtures and cultivates upcoming creators.
