Science! She blinded me with science! “Science and science fiction are essentially the same…they’re both the same,” says Star Trek’s William Shatner. Thanks again to our wonderful submitters, judges, volunteers and supporters!

We very much appreciate your positive reviews. Thanks for sharing our awards and posts with your Colorado-based social media to include Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. We anticipate submissions from many countries. Activists submit short & feature-length films, screenplays, music/songs, art and photos for consideration by our team of 3-8 judges, which may change seasonally.
The Bug, Denver Open Media (DOM), Alamo Drafthouse, and venues that host our events are non-smoking venues. Please consult venues directly for rules and guidelines. As our festival grows locally in popularity & sponsorship, we hope to invite partners & volunteers. We hope to hold panels and debates. In the meantime, our events may be lightly attended, so please plan accordingly.
All plans and practices are subject to change without notice. If you're interested in volunteering, helping judge submissions and/or writing film & music reviews, which we may publish at our websites, please don't hesitate to TEXT/CALL (720) 298-1524.
This year's SciFi & Fantasy film event was held Sunday, 10/20/2019 from 3-9 PM at The Bug Theater, 3654 Navajo Street, Denver Colorado 80211. Details, https://infiniteperimeter.com/2019/10/25/cisfff2019-colorado-intl-scifi-fantasy-film-festival-announces-award-winners/
We like "quirky" scifi and fantasy characters including mummies, monsters, aliens, space invaders, body snatchers and zombies ...the undead, generally, especially politicians! We like space-related fantasies along the lines of Gravity (2013) and Daniel Espinosa's Life (2017). We like thrillers like The Thirteenth Floor (1999). We would love to showcase your expose similar to Peter Hyams' Capricorn One (1977), a government conspiracy thriller film about a Mars landing hoax.
We're interested in documentaries along the lines of Behind the Curve by Daniel J. Clark that discuss cosmological models & evolving associated cultural movements like "Flat Earth." We would love to showcase your documentary presentations like Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take? (2011) and The Principle (2014), which critique standard models.
We're interested in dramas and documentaries that explore evolving filmic, photographic & experiential technologies, VR, gaming, motion capture, SFX, VFX and new lens & camera technologies. How did Luc Besson achieve all that awesome imagery in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)? Who wasn't blown away by Ready Player One (2018)?
We like travel narratives & expeditions - both modern & ancient, documentary & dramatic. We especially like complicated time travel stories along the lines of Triangle (2009), Predestination (2014), Primer (2004), Looper (2012), In Time (2007), The Time Traveler's Wife (2009) and Timecrimes (2007).
We like dystopian stories like HULU's The Handmaid's Tale (2017). We love exploring strange futuristic worlds like Blade Runner 2049 (2017) where technological advances in robotics and artificial intelligence threaten to destroy the very fabric of humanity and the universe.
Depending on the number and types of submissions we receive, we may provide alternative and/or additional awards.

All plans and practices are subject to change without notice. In general, we select festival screeners from Award Winners, Finalists and Semi-Finalists. Please see our websites for guidelines. We're not fans of extreme gore & violence. Ditto for lots of bad language and cursing.
Script submissions must contain a cover page. Script submissions under a pen name must be pre-approved by festival organizers prior to submission. Submission Statuses (Award, Finalist, Semi-Finalist, Selected) may change as requirements are satisfied. If you receive an "Incomplete" or "Disqualified" status, please call/text us for clarification. If you have pressing, immediate, very important questions or concerns re: your submission, please do not send them to us via email! Instead, please don't hesitate to call/text us, (720) 298-1524.
All refund requests are handled at the discretion of our festival organizers. If submitters have a valid reason for a refund request, we will do our best to provide refunds and/or waiver codes. Please note that non-acceptance to our festival is not a valid reason for a refund. Please check out these guidelines, https://filmfreeway.com/help.
All submissions must be the original work of the submitterr/creative. Non-English speaking films and music videos should be subtitled in English. Music videos should be music-track centric, featuring the music/song/lyrics as the primary content, one single track from start to finish (not including credits). Also, music videos should include the musician & song title in the title and on-screen credits.
A short or feature-length film that is highly visual with music added to emphasize, augment, & illustrate visual content would not qualify as a "music video." Please submit these under "All Categories." Please be sure your submission is relevant to the theme of our festival!
After we select a submission and the submitter is notified, the submission will eventually be published in PDF format on our festival web sites, InfinitePerimeter.com and/or AIAFilmmakers.org.
Award, Finalist, Semi-Finalist, Selected and Non-selected submissions will be published..
Withdrawn statuses will not be listed. If you do not wish your submission to show as "Non-selected" please withdraw it prior to the Notification Date. Please allow a few weeks following the conclusion of festival live events to find your submission(s) listed at our websites.
