The SiouxperCon Film Festival is an independent festival that takes place each year at the SiouxperCon pop culture convention in Sioux Falls, SD. The SiouxperCon Film Festival is unique in that the films selected for the festival will screen alongside repertory screenings of classic genre films in the horror, anime, action, and sci-fi category.

Films selected for the festival are both short and feature length films. Once selected filmmakers will be given a 3 day weekend pass to SiouxperCon, which includes all events including entry to the Film Festival. We invite each filmmaker selected to take part in a panel discussion following their screening.

SiouxperCon is a 3 day fan convention event, including celebrities, panels, cosplay, vendors, pro wrestling, film screenings and more.

    It was such a grand experience to have Siouxpercon be the first venue anywhere to exhibit our film. Filmed locally with local talent, it was quite appropriate to debut Perchance to Dream there.
