WeirdFilm screens horror, fantasy, sci-fi or just plain weird films from around the world, twice a year (Spring and Halloween-ish). Submissions open for Spring.

The San Francisco Bay Area is the home of Pixar, ILM, Tippett Studios and Zoetrope, and audiences are genre buffs. Filmmakers can join Q&A, and meet colleagues and fans in the theater bar and restaurant.

Short films: 15 minutes maximum. Feature: anything longer.
Any date of completion is OK; publicly on the Internet is OK for *short* films only.
Provide online screener, genre, synopsis, & English subtitles if dialog is not in English. We screen digital files (MOV, MP4, etc.)
You must own rights to any music & stock media in your film.
Films may not be withdrawn from consideration & submission is considered consent to screening.
Past submissions are re-considered each time (you need not submit the same film twice).

  • Weird is a festival full of weirdness and humour, I love it. It was not only an honour, but above all a great pleasure, to be part of it. Thank you Weird to be there and to allow another kind of cinema to exist.
