In 2016 the second NZ Web Fest also ran at Media Design School, on 19 November.
For 2017, the NZ Web Fest has been accepted as one of the participating festivals in the Web Series World Cup. The third edition will run in November.
The festival is run by a group of generous volunteers led (occasionally in the right direction) by Keith, who is also the founder and editor of online NZ screen industry publications SCREENZ and Crewed.
Fiona left the NZ Web Fest prior to its second edition.
