International Selection

A selection of international series in competition in front of a jury of professionals

Like every year, a selection of 15 international short series will be presented to the audience and put in competition before a jury of professionals.

This official selection will naturally focus on the quality and originality of the series in competition. Carried out by professionals in the audiovisual industry, this selection is made according to specific qualitative criteria (script, staging, acting, technical qualities, etc.).

Through this selection, the festival wishes to highlight the diversity of creation and wants to be an incubator for new talents and to serve as a springboard for creation. In addition, most of the series presented will be broadcast exclusively.

The Marseille Web Fest will project the first episodes (20 minutes maximum) of the series on the big screen for the duration of the festival, and they will be available online for free, with subtitles (in French for foreign series) after registration on our dedicated platform.

After watching the series online, the jury of international professionals will choose the winners of the following prizes:
