WeirdFilm screens horror, fantasy, sci-fi or just plain Weird films from around the world, twice a year. The May screening expands to two nights & will now include feature films.

The SF Bay Area is the home of Pixar, ILM, Tippett Studios and Zoetrope, and WeirdFilm audiences are genre buffs. Filmmakers can join Q&A, and network in the theater bar and restaurant.

Short films: 15 minutes maximum.
Anything longer should be submitted under Feature film.
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.
Past submissions are kept for consideration (you need not submit twice).

    A great venue and great communication. We had a simultaneous screening in Berlin which kept us from attending in person.

  • The festival's communication was great. I couldn't attend but heard it was a fun festival with high quality submissions. Looking forward to submitting in the future.
