UPP Studios proudly entered its first new media production, "Actpartment", into the Toronto Web Festival. In an attempt to not only reach a national audience with festivals like the Hollyweb Festival and San Francisco Web Fest, UPP Studios is reaching
internationally with Toronto and Vancouver web festivals as well. While some of these festivals bring with them monetary prizes (which UPP Studios would use to make bigger and better new media productions, while also expanding on current projects such as Actpartment), others bring with them the kind of prestige and notoriety that could open doors and create opportunities which would allow UPP Studios to grow. Furthermore, these festivals can provide a learning experience for UPP Studios, not only from the creators of the other web series with whom the company is competing, but also the festival audiences, which UPP Studios will use to adapt and evolve.
