REFUCED ENTRY FEES for year 5!!
The FantaSci Short Film Festival is a festival dedicated exclusively to short (20 minutes and under) fantasy and sci-fi films. Like you, we're filmmakers ourselves. So we know there's a dearth of outlets to get your passion projects seen.
We are a founding member of the Best of Film Fest family (http://bestoffilmfest.com/).We have live screening blocks of only the best, award winning films chosen by our judges.
As everyone is well aware, due to the global pandemic, we are unsure of being able to screen in a venue for our 5th year. However, we will not be streaming your films regardless. We do, though, have a gala streaming awards event! Be sure to watch last years awards on our web site.
We'll have lots of categories from comedy and drama to fan films and even machinima. Here's an idea of the categories we'll have:
Best of the Fest
Best Use of Genre
Best Supporting Actor
Best Supporting Actress
Best Sound Design
Best Set Design
Best Teen Film
Best Fan Film
Best 3D Animation
Indie Auteur Award
Audience Choice Award
The Judy Lawrence Memorial Award
No cash prizes will be awarded. We'll start off with winning laurels and certificates and hope to have trophies if there are enough funds.
All films must be 20 minutes or less.
As our name implies, we only accept films in the fantasy or sci-fi genres. We are not a horror festival, but there is certainly some cross-over. To that end, we have a horror category, as well. Feel free to submit your horror films.
You must own all the rights to your film and hold this festival harmless against any and all claims. Also, by submitting your film to our festival you give us permission to use stills or clips for promotional purposes, such as promo trailers, awards reels, web site images, etc.
