With International Celebrities, panels, screenings, and mayhem for three days, its a weekend you soon won't forget! ( est. 2011 )

Distribution deals, film deals, and industry contacts have all been made at our screenings, and a captive audience ( the wildest crowds in the nation ) spread word faster than the dial up internet your grandma checks her email with!

    Shock Stock is legendary for many reasons, and the organizers are always very responsive and put on a great event every year. Plus, the films are always top-notch. A great mix. We've been fortunate enough to have a few of our films screen here, and it's always a good crowd, and a great place to meet the coolest people.
