WeirdFilm screens horror, fantasy, sci-fi and just plain weird films from around the world.

We return to a live show Halloween 2022! and a trivia contest with prizes, at PianoFight, well-known downtown performance venue with a lovely bar and restaurant.

The San Francisco area is home to 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.
Any date of completion is OK; publicly on the Internet is OK.
Provide online screener (MOV or MP4), with synopsis, & English subtitles if dialog is not in English.
You must own rights to any music & stock media in your film.
Films may not be withdrawn from consideration & submission = consent to screening.
Past submissions are frequently re-considered (no need to submit the same film twice).

    Weird Film Fest had great communication all the way through and were extremely friendly. We really wish we could have been there in person. They have great taste in shorts and we would absolutely submit something again and hopefully attend next tim!

    Thank you for including my film 'Burial'. It is an honour to be part of the Festival. I wish I could have been there in person at the screening.

  • 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.
