The LIMA WEB FEST pays tribute to its predecessor; the SERIES WEB AWARDS, a festival that was launched successfully in 2016, and that since then has had a great reception from audiovisual creators from all over the world.
The LIMA WEB FEST was born with a new identity, but with the renewed intention of bringing together the audiovisual content creators of the world, to celebrate together the best of us.
This new festival expands its bases to receive in a special way the producers of audiovisual content made with animation, and the creators of video games.
A dynamic and enriching networking.
Days designed to strengthen ties between creators, producers, and filmmakers, days for young students to learn from the best, through their experiences and knowledge.
A party of audiovisual creativity by and for creators from around the world!
At Toulouse Lautrec we are proud to return to the world web festival circuit with a new identity: LIMA WEB FEST. A renewed festival with the same desire to celebrate the talent of the audiovisual industry produced exclusively for the digital environment.
The LIMA WEB FEST, a tribute of what was the Series Web Awards, includes as of this year two important worlds of the entertainment industry: digital animation and video games.
For us, the Toulouse Lautrec School, creativity and innovation are important pillars in the transformation and improvement of society. Sponsoring events such as the LIMA WEB FEST encourages the exchange between creators, producers, filmmakers and other important industry leaders, and students and teachers, for the benefit of the training process of future audiovisual professionals.
Welcome to the event that celebrates the best of audiovisual entertainment for the web.
Welcome to LIMA WEB FEST 2021.
The best productions made for the web competing to be the best in their categories!
Best Series according to Online Voting
The audience can also participate by choosing their favorite series through online voting, granting them special recognition.
Best Web Series of the Year
We seek to recognize the best fiction series made exclusively for the Internet. These are good stories, which have adequate resources, starting from an original proposal, a production design in accordance with the economy of formal resources and which are solidly rooted in the principles of web narrative.
In every production, the character that ties each piece of the story together is the director. He is the one who transforms the proposal of the script into reality. For this reason, we recognize their talent, taking into account the development, both functional and expressive, of the staging of a product created and made for the web.
The success of any production begins with the originality of an idea, that can be transformed into a strong and solid script. Telling a story through sound and pictures for a platform with conditions like the web is a challenging task. Short and brief shots and a specific length that captures the viewer from any digital device are the basis for the success of a given proposal. The best narrated stories will be awarded by our jury.
Best Art Direction
The art director is, along with the photography, the costume and the production director, the one who is responsible for the visual aspect of the film, for that haze called “aesthetic”, that ultimately defines the visual aspect of a production. Art directors treasure a mental encyclopedia of decorative styles, a vast amount of documentation and, of course, an intuition to know what objects, spaces and colors help tell the story better than others.
Best Male Performance
The actor is the one who gives life to the character that makes us laugh or cry. The shots and angles are different for each dramatic structure. The performance for a support such as the web, in which each viewer will enjoy content from their Smartphone or Tablet, is a doubly challenging job. This category rewards the best male performance who overcomes this challenge.
Best Female Performance
In the same way, actresses must condition their talent to the new audiovisual language proposed by the web as a platform. Designing your character for different devices is a different challenge. The jury will recognize the acting work of that actress who adapts to this language and offers a contribution to this new way of telling stories.
Best Edition and Post Production
The dynamism and treatment of the image is what gives aesthetic value to any production. Visual rhythm, sound, music, are resources that must be adapted in the same way to the language of the web. Telling a short story in no more than three minutes, keeping the viewer's interest thanks to the assembly of the shots and other elements, will be what the jury will acknowledge in this category.
Best Mobile Video Game
Video games have some elements that are considered good practices, not only about the design, but with the experience as a whole. For example: a very direct and even dramatic interface; or character design, which reinforces that "we are all the same and equally suspicious." Everything is created to be exaggerated and fun. It is key to offer a variety of gameplay and that the user enters the playful part immediately, without the need for a long and complex tutorial.
Best 3D Video Game
3D games often use three-dimensional geometry, with textures and materials rendered on the GameObjects surface, to reveal the solid environments, characters, and objects that make up the game world. This cutting-edge conceptualization will be recognized, for the first time, at LWF 2021.
We seek to acknowledge the best digital animation video made exclusively for the Internet. This is about good stories that have an original proposal, a production design in accordance with the economy of formal resources, and that are solidly rooted in the traits and principles of digital animation.
In every animated production, the person that ties each piece together is the director. He is the one who transforms the proposal of the script into reality.
With an excellent script, the challenge is to tell a story and convey emotions through sound and digital illustrations animated for the web. The best narrated stories will be awarded by our jury.
Best Art Direction
The Art director is responsible for the construction of worlds in the language of digital animation and cinema in general. Fictional worlds that intentionally evoke new realities. Absolutely nothing is real. With selected fragments from the repertoire of recognizable areas, images are built that represent the place where the characters live and where the viewer is going to enter, accepting that reality as valid.
Best Sound Direction
Sound designers (for cinema or animation) are a key figure in the development of a film: they make sure that the dialogue is heard, that there is a balance between all the parts that make up the sound (effects, music and dialogue) and that every detail is in its exact place, all in order to create a unique audiovisual experience.
