HollyWeb Festival 2013 Review

​Christine Piccolo, April 14th 2013

There are many Indie Festivals out there now that the creative freedom online provides is being recognized, but one stands above the rest- Hollyweb!  Last weekend the Indie community came out in droves for the 3 day screening event which ended with a blue carpet event and awards show.

Jennifer and Daniel Doherty really out did themselves for their 2nd annual festival, which was very organized and everyone I spoke to was impressed.  Screenings of 105 Official Hollyweb Picks were done at Raleigh Studios, Chaplin Theatre in Hollywood, beginning Friday April 5 through Sunday April 7.  I have to admit that I had no idea how many great webseries were out there.  The picks selected were definitely worthy of the honor, though my favorite of course was seeing DeVanity's season two Christmas episode on the big screen!  Catfights never looked so good!

The Vault Wins Best Web Series

MaxIt Magazine, May 2013

It's another win in the independent filmmaking world. Two filmmakers set out to prove that quality does not have to be sacrificed due to small budgets and crew, and that's exactly what they did. On April 6th and 7th of 2013, The Vault, an independent web series created by Aaron Hann and Mario Miscione, went on to win best overall web series at the HollyWeb Festival. The Vault has since gained a sizable audience, and garnered the attention of festivals and professionals alike. It's been described as "One of the web's most exciting new series" - Creative Planet Network and "My new LOST" -reelseo

Michael Record, June 18 2013

The month of April has become an important one for creators of web series. In both 2012 and 2013 a massive cinema in Raleigh Studios, Hollywood has played host to the HollyWeb awards: an event created to honour and appreciate the creators and performers of web series. We have given our approving thumbs up to their efforts previously.

Because we love to showcase the efforts of people working hard to further web series we contacted the people behind the HollyWeb awards in order to batter them into submission with our eager questioning. Jennifer and Daniel Doherty are already hard at work planning next year’s event but were happy to tell us more about how they came to create the focal point for the web series calendar.
