die Seriale - DigitalSeriesFestival Giessen is the oldest festival in Germany dedicated to present and celebrate digital series. Our goal is to connect, support and pay tribute to all talented creators from around the world and to advertise their wonderful work. On six festival days lectures, workshops and panel discussions will be held. All selected series will be screened in the cinema, open air and after the festival days at die Seriale SparqFest website for one week. The most outstanding series will be awarded by an expert jury. With the Seriale Pro we present a platform for the international digital series industry.

die Seriale was launched by the two film makers, Csongor Dobrotka (Number of Silence) and Dennis Albrecht (Filmstadt), on June 12th, 2015 in order to offer German-speaking independent series a platform beyond the internet, as well; to highlight their innovative nature and their extraordinary quality and to connect the series creators among each other. The exchange between the filmmakers was supposed to enhance the quality of the format and to establish new perspectives in producing and publication.
