Welcome to Fear No Film & Fear No Film KIDS 2018. Fear No Film, in essence, means fear no filmMAKER nor filmmaker vision.

This is a unique festival that screens a wide variety of short films in context-rich, thematic screenings such as 2015's "The Impulses," 2012's "The Tipping Points," 2011's "The Greek Muses: Comedy, Tragedy, Love, Dance, History, Astronomy, Lyrical, Spiritual, and Lyric Storytelling", 2010's "Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Docs, Happy, Grumpy, Bashful (or Not),", and 2008's "Films that Lean to the Left, Lean to the Right, Stand Up, Sit Down, Fight! Fight! FIGHT!"

And, film is just one of 50+ art forms happening simultaneously. The Utah Arts Festival is one of the largest, most culturally rich artistic showcases in the western United States. The works celebrated at the festival stretch well beyond the borders of Utah, exposing over 80,000 festival-goers to a diverse collection of contemporary yet traditional, challenging yet accessible, thought provoking yet fun range of works over four frenetic days every June. 

The Fear No Film Festival aims to celebrate a similar range of artistic excellence. Over 60 international short films will be screened with non-cash awards awarded by a Grand Jury, the Utah Arts Festival, and by an audience vote.

Awards & Prizes

Non-cash, Grand Jury awards include the "2018 Utah Short Film of the Year," "Fear No Film Best of Show," "Fear No Filmmaker Award," and Honorable Mentions.

Non-cash Audience Awards are awarded to nine filmmakers, and may include categories such as "Film that best caused an uncontrollable audience reaction (Sneezy)," "Film that best highlighted cultural dissonance," and "Film that made me feel most observed."

YOU GET THE IDEA. This is an extremely filmmaker friendly festival with an award system that awards individual accomplishments and key themes in your film via audience and a Grand Jury vote.

Rules & Terms

Fear No Film Festival (FNF) is a unique short film and video festival which is part of the greater Utah Arts Festival (UAF). Film is one of dozens of artistic mediums happening simultaneously. Film screenings are shorter than stand-alone film festivals, and we do NOT have Q and A's after our screenings. The Utah Arts Festival is a blast, by the way.

FNF accepts short films and videos of any genre regardless of year of production.
