The second edition of the Liege Web Fest took place on October 10th 2014 at the Cité Miroir. The festival has gathered many international transmedia and web-series stakeholders as well a public audience. This time, there was more than 200 people for the seminars and again more than 300 people for the projection evening. The organisation has been especially oriented on international collaborations.
The Liege Web Fest was again divided into two parts. The afternoon was dedicated to professional meetings with speeches on finalized projects, a pitch contest and a transmedia speed dating aperitive. These meetings have been organized for professionals, project stakeholders and students.
During the evening were the projections. Web-series and transmedia works, from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation but also international, have been broadcasted.
