ABOUT US

EMERGINGSERIES is an online platform about the web series and webdocs.

The project was born in the University of Palermo and includes media and cinema journalists, scholars and professors.

The idea is to study the heterogeneous world of webseries and webdocs through news, articles, reports from festivals. We are working to create a large archive and recently we have launched the EmergingSeries Journal, the academic Journal in which we will publish the resut of our researches.
