Dub Web Fest is a celebration of the storytelling power of the Internet. Dub Web Fest brings together the movers and makers of the digital media and tech worlds to create amazing creative, collaborative opportunities.
Ireland is in a unique place. The European headquarters of the Facebook, Google and Apple are here. We have Joyce, Wilde, and Beckett to our name. We are a film production hub. This is what is needed to succeed in today’s competitive, online centric world: tech savviness and creative edge. Ireland has both.
Dub Web Fest believes that Ireland will be a web series and digital content hub. We want to be the starting point for that future. We will be hosting panels, screenings, workshops and events on the A-Z of digital content today. Dub Web Fest is part of a mission with LA Web Fest, SF Web Fest and Berlin Web Fest to promote web series and digital content creation around the world.
