    If you have a genre project anywhere within geek universe—fantasy, science fi, horror, etc.—this festival is for you. It's literally one of the best deals on the fest circuit today. Once you're in, your project gets shown at multiple venues and cons over the course a year, giving you many opportunities to promote and market. Not to mention that Bill, the fest show runner, couldn't be nicer. And does he ever promote the heck out of your project if you get in. This one is not to be missed!

    Clearly one of the coolest fests in existence. Bill's done an incredible job and the value is off the charts -- multiple screenings in multiple cities, and the audience is already built in. If you're a genre filmmaker, this one is a no-brainer. Hope to have an opportunity to screen with GeekFest again!

    This is the second time we've done GeekFest. It's a great way to get your films out in front of your target audience. Unfortunately I can't get out to every single one of the cons they visit (I wish I could afford it), but valuable nonetheless.

    So thankful to Bill for choosing our show "The Hunted" to be a part of Year 4 of Geekfest! We're one of the longest running shows online (www.thehunted.tv), but we only advertise via word of mouth, so this was a perfect opportunity to introduce ourselves to the perfect audience.

    And Geekfest is the best deal around. Thanks to Bill for putting this together. Where else can you tour your film at multiple venues across the country for one low price?
