Our film festival started Friday, Oct. 23rd and runs through Nov. 13th. This year, our judges have selected 11 scripts, 28 shorts, 10 features, 4 music videos and 1 trailer (only) to screen. Screening submissions are generally eligible for awards, which we publish 1-2 weeks following conclusion of our live events.

Here's a festival announcement, https://infiniteperimeter.com/2020/10/23/colorados-3rd-sci-fi-fantasy-film-festival-goes-online/ Please watch for additional announcements and share with friends, family and fans. Thanks for sharing our links and your awards, posts and more with your social media; find us on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram @InfinitePFilms

All plans and practices are subject to change without notice. By submitting to our film festivals, the submitter agrees to allow us to download and screen the submission. By submitting to our film festivals, the submitter provides consent for us - AIAFilmmakers, Infinite Perimeter Films, and our team - to download and/or upload their intellectual property to the internet.

Due to "pandemic" insanity, we're holding our film festivals online this year. Check it out, https://oneplusphi.vhx.tv/browse. Please purchase access $2/month, https://oneplusphi.vhx.tv/checkout/subscribe/purchase

Unless you've made special/alternative arrangements with us, your submission is available to stream continuously through Nov. 13th. If you want to screen, please provide us with easy access ASAP to your submission download ONLY via FilmFreeway and/or Vimeo, MP4, 1920 x 1080. In a pinch, we're happy to download from We Transfer, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc. You can send us a ZIP file via email. Please compress your files, https://vimeoott.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022894454-Video-Compression-Settings

IMPORTANT: We require a "Download" button to grab your submission at Vimeo!

As we understand it, by screening online in a fixed-term, pay-wall enforced, official festival capacity, your submission is not earning revenue or being sold to consumers in a traditional VOD market and, therefore, remains viable for future sales opportunities.

We very much appreciate your positive reviews! We regret that we are unable to select all of the artistic submissions we receive each season. In the event your submission has not been selected, you withdraw from the festival, etc., as long as your relationship with us is in good standing, you are still absolutely welcome to create & maintain your AIAFILMmakers profile.

Also, we are happy to host your trailer(s) indefinitely. Please consult all platforms & venues directly for additional, important rules and guidelines regarding your privacy and more.

Last year's SciFi & Fantasy film event was held 10/20/2019, 3-9 PM, The Bug Theater, 3654 Navajo Street, Denver Colorado 80211, 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, 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 like docs like Behind the Curve by Daniel J. Clark that discuss alternative 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 & docs that explore evolving filmic, photographic & experiential technologies including VR, 360, 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.

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. 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.
