About the NZ Web Fest
The NZ Web Fest was created by Keith Barclay and Fiona Powell in 2015. It presented its inaugural edition on 7 November at Media Design School in Auckland, celebrating web series and online video content. The inaugural event included conference sessions and screenings, topped off with the presentation of awards.
In 2017, the NZ Web Fest was accepted as one of the participating festivals in the Web Series World Cup.

The festival is run by a group of generous volunteers led (occasionally in the right direction) by Keith, who’s currently the editor of ShowNews, and was also the founder and editor of online NZ screen industry publications SCREENZ and Crewed.
Fiona left the NZ Web Fest prior to its second edition.
