The third season of Justin Harwood’s High Road is named among the selections for the Wendie Webfest in Hamburg.
With stereotypical German efficiency, festival organisers have released their 35-title selection list three months ahead of the festival’s September dates. Over the weekend High Road played the Toronto Web Fest, where it was nominated for Best Ensemble.
High Road is sitting at #4 in the latest Web Series World Cup rankings (15 May). Wendie will be its second trip to Germany this year. Next week it competes in Giessen at the Die Seriale Web Fest, where it has award nominations for Best Series, Actor (Mark Mitchinson) and Supporting Actress (Emma Thompson).
Other WSWC contenders selected for Wendie include the second season of Lebanese doco series Zyara and Luke Eve’s Aussie comedy about a bi-polar teen, High Life, exec produced by Stephen Fry’s Sprout Pictures.
Hamburg’s Wendie Webfest runs 1 – 2 September.
