Revry Presents 3rd Annual Out Web Fest May 18-20


Premiere queer global streaming network, Revry, is proud to present the 3rd annual Out Web Fest (OWF), the first queer web festival celebrating the best in independent LGBTQ digital storytelling.  OWF announces its 2018 competition lineup today as the festival features luminaries in the LGBTQ+ and media influencer communities with industry speaker panels, parties, screenings, digital pitchfests and the Revry Visibility Awards.

“OWF has made a mark in the world of content creation in highlighting unique, groundbreaking, and sometimes subversive content that is too often overlooked by the mainstream festivals,” says Revry CEO, Damian Pelliccione.  “In the 21st Century, short-form content leads as the hottest and fastest growing category in digital entertainment and OWF creates the perfect forum to share multiple perspectives of queer culture that makes our stories some of the most innovative, ground-breaking and unique in the world.”  

OWF introduces international and local digital content creators, producers, and fans to inclusive programming, acknowledging the cultural significance of this revolutionary intersection of medium and storytelling.  The three-day fest starts with opening night at YouTube Space LA May 18th, with the rest of the festival taking place in the heart of West Hollywood, CA at the London Hotel. 

Past awardees, participants, and sponsors include Tyler Oakley, Gigi Gorgeous, Hannah Hart, Ari Fitz, Amber’s Closet, Viacom, EOne, Grindr, and Maker Studios. Closing night awards will include prizes like free sound stage rentals courtesy of Shamrock Studios, Revry Development and Distribution deals, as well as an Audience Award with automatic entry into Rio Web Fest including travel and accommodations to beautiful Rio de Janeiro.     OWF is proud to partner with other international web festivals including New Zealand Web Fest and the International Online Web Fest.

This year OWF is partnering with famed digital creator festival, Buffer Festival for their first Buffer Festival LA on May 17th (including Dodie Clark, Louis Cole, Matthew Santoro, Mikey Murphy & Sabrina Cruz).  “We’re incredibly excited to join forces with Revry’s OWF in the very first Buffer Festival LA.  Revry’s OWF has been a leader in promoting diversity through elevated content and stories about real people and real circumstances, something Buffer Festival is passionate about as we make our expansion across North America,” shares Scott Benzie, CEO of Buffer Festival.  A discounted ticket for both festivals can be purchased at: https://www.showpass.com/buffer-festival-la-combo-pack/  (Note: The OWF ticket will be a discounted optional add-on once the Buffer Festival LA customer gets to check-out.)
