The 2017 Big Fandom Film Festival happens every year during Big Fandom Greenville - Greenville, SC's premiere multi-fandom convention and showcases the very best of short films from around the Carolinas and beyond!

Awards & Prizes

All award winners will receive an award certificate and free VIP admission to the following year's BFG event. The Grand Prize "Best in Show" winner will also receive a specially engraved physical trophy.

Rules & Terms

We currently only showcase short films (no more than 20 minutes in length). No films longer than 20 minutes will be accepted. This is due to time constaints set by the convention.

All accepted films MUST provide a physical DVD copy of their film to be screened at the Big Fandom Film Festival. DVD copies can be mailed to the SUBMISSION ADDRESS provided in advance, or hand-delivered upon arrival at Big Fandom Greenville. Any accepted film that does not provide a physical DVD will NOT be screened. No exceptions.

    Big Fandom is just starting out, so it's a smaller con compared to others I've been to, but that resulted in a more one-on-one feeling with the attendees. I met many local filmmakers and enjoyed the screenings.

    An outstanding film festival that was laid-back, engaging, and very fun to be a part of. Will definitely be returning as often as I can.

    Even though I couldn't attend the actual festival, it was a great honour to have my film selected and exhibited at the 2016 Big Fandom Film Festival, thank you all.
