Robbo sez, "The first annual Toronto Web Fest is happening this May 9-11th and they are still taking submissions until March 9th - so if anyone has a Web series they'd like to enter - now is the time.
T.O. WebFest is a 3 day festival of screenings and industry events being held at the Harbourfront Centre to celebrate the burgeoning Web series community.
Toronto is recognized as an active hub of web series creation and the fest will be an opportunity to share local works with an incredible array of offerings from around the world. These are works made specifically for release online and are not the sort of thing you'd find on broadcast television - although the production values and quality of storytelling matches and surpasses most anything you'd find on TV.
Official selections will be announced April 1st.
TORONTO WEBFEST WELCOMES YOU!
Full disclosure: I'm the acting president of the Independent Web Series Creators of Canada (IWCC) and we're the ones organizing the festival. http://iwcc-ciwc.org It's gonna be fucking awesome.

“Information Doesn’t Want to Be Free” is my 2014 nonfiction book about copyright, the internet, and earning a living, and it features two smashing introductions — one by Neil Gaiman and the other by Amanda Palmer.
The Pocket Tripod PRO had massive Kickstarter success in 2013, raising almost $85,000 in a single month. But this isn’t just another case of pre-release product hype. This ingenious little device folds out from a credit-card-shaped plastic slab into a sturdy stand with a surprisingly wide range of motion. In portrait orientation, your phone slides […]
Loot Crate is a totally different kind of subscription service that mails subscribers monthly boxes filled with curated geek, pop culture, and gamer paraphernalia.

The ARMOR-X Mini Flexible Phone Tripod is a smartphone tripod that is designed with flexible legs to rest on virtually any type of surface. Other tripods have proved useless unless I conveniently have a flat surface in front of me, which is why this particular tripod was appealing enough to try out. The ARMOR-X is compact and easy […]
