The Fargo Fantastic Film Festival exists to showcase the ambitious and creative independent filmmaker. To make a good “genre” film takes real creativity, craftsmanship and – yes, artistic merit. We show professional and amateur productions as both can learn from the other. The fest kicks off at the Fargo Theatre and then continues in conjunction with VALLEYCON, the premiere pop culture celebration in the region!

Awards for best films in various genres, both short subject and feature. Also the Roger and Julie Corman Award for Intrepid Filmmaking.

Submit films via online submission ONLY, all films that are selected must supply a file for projection (to be converted to blu-ray for projection-DCP is NOT available except when requested by the fest due to limited movie theater projection)

    I was not able to attend unfortunately, however I can say that Fargo Fantastic Film Festival is one of the best film festivals out there. They always have a diverse line-up. I have submitted twice and I have always had great communication with them. I highly recommend it.

    Was very happy to be included in this festival. From the get go, communication was great and made me feel like my film was in good hands. Definitely recommended as a stop on your festival run!

  • It was a really pleasure to be part of this festival!!!

    Even though I wasn´t able to attend to the festival, I´m very happy to have been part of the festival with my short film HAY ALGO EN LA OSCURIDAD (SOMETHING IN THE DARKNESS).

    Thanks a lot to the director and crew of the festival for their great attention and kindness, thank you so much!

    For me as a spanish filmmaker ist´s a great opportunity to show my work outside my country, thanks!

    I hope to have the opportunity again to be in the festival in the future. See you soon FARGO!
