NZ web series selected for Raindance

NZ web series selected for Raindance

NZ On Air funded web series 'Woodville' has been selected to take part in Europe’s leading independent film festival - Raindance.

The comedy web series will be the only Kiwi production to feature in Raindance’s inaugural Web Fest – a web series ‘micro-festival’ taking place during the Film Festival itself.

Woodville producer and director Georgiana Taylor says it's very exciting to be part of the first ever Web Fest from the festival which has launched iconic hits such as Pulp Fiction and Momento.

“It’s great Raindance founders have recognised the importance of web series as a medium for showcasing new talent and high quality content.”

Since Woodville was launched in May of this year, the series has been picked up by the Sydney Morning Herald online, Stuff.co.nz, and Quickflix.

Web Fest will take place on the 28th and 29th of September 2013.

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
