As Canada’s premiere digital content festival, our team wants to give all webseries creators and attendees a top-notch experience. This year, we are leveling up! We’ve got fantastic speakers, great merch, and parties you’ll never forget!

WebSeries Canada Conference (WSC) expands our offerings with WSC Talks, a series of live interactive presentations and interviews from leading web series creators and industry professionals.

WSC Talks is a live interactive format that aims to showcase webseries funders and suppliers as well as the work of selected creators.

The format allows for a 20-minute presentation from creators or partners that includes a Q&A segment from our live audience.

Selected content creators will present a 10-minute screening of their series, which is immediately followed by a 10-minute, live on-stage (or virtual) talk from the creator about various aspects of the production, all guided by our host.

Hosted by Rodney V. Smith, President of Webseries Canada and Creative Director of T.O. Webfest.
