Hot As Hell Festival

This year's web series fan festival “Hot As Hell” (Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hot-As-Hell-Event/121312778067774) (Twitter: http://twitter.com/HotAsHellEvent) is being held once again in Palm Springs, Calif, Friday, Aug. 8, 2014 through Sunday, Aug. 10, 2014. The festival is being held at the Riviera Resort Hotel.

August in Palm Springs is one of the hottest places to be as the name eludes but “Hot as Hell” also refers to the festival itself, the entertainment it offers, and the list of web series participants that are drawn to it. Attended mostly by Los Angeles based series, this year series representatives include a Daytime Emmy Award nominee from as far away as New York City.

Brainchild of Steve Silverman, creator of web series “Pretty” and “The Inn,” and Julie A. Smith, creator of “Fumbling Thru the Pieces,” the festival is a chance for creators and actors to relax and mingle with their fans for a fun-filled weekend. There are also special screenings of premiere series episodes and never-seen-before blooper reels.

As web series attract more and more viewers, one of the things fans really love is interacting with a show's creators and actors. They will get plenty of that at this year's festival. Tickets to the event can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets. For a Hot as Hell weekend, Palm Springs is the place to be August 8th!
