On 29th of October our CREW had to divide between two international web series festivals: Bilbao Web Fest in Spain and UK Web Fest in UK. Natalia Paska, Assistant director was representing “Talking to Grandma” in London. After the screening of the 7th episode “Phone book”(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pe8FPXKXn3k) at The Prince Charles Cinema she took part also in the Award ceremony. This time we have prepared for you a photo coverage from this event.
Official Selection of Rio WebFest was broadcasted live on October 15th on facebook fanpage: www.facebook.com/riowebfest . The spoken language was brazilian portuguese, but there was an English translation on the video comments. At 1 am we read that Ula Zawadzka was nominated for Best Performance in Comedy!!!
Ula Zawadzka trained in New York Film Academy, with Elizabeth Kemp (Artistic Director of The Actors Studio in NY) and Bernard Hiller (Hollywood Acting Coach), among others. She made her feature film debut in Basen (Swimmingpool), directed by Krzysztof Pawlowski, starring as Duty Manager alongside Adam Woronowicz and awarded on the Polish biggest film festival in Gdynia.

Rio Webfest is much more than an awards ceremony, but an event with masterclasses, panels, workshops and a lot of networking with international producers and distributors. Rio Web Fest is the biggest international web celebration of Brazil! The second edition will take place in 1-4 December 2016 in the wonderful city of Rio de Janeiro.
UK Web Series Festival is the first regional touring web festival in the UK. It will take place on 29th of October starting in London and then the screenings will continue in Manchester, Birmingham and Bath.

The motto of the festival is: “Be Seen. Be Heard. Create.”
