Our creative and inspirational environment is ideal for exploring films that ponder the infinite possibilities our multiverse holds.

Content submitted to the SciFi Miami festival will be promoted on our website, in printed materials (such as the festival program), and in our press and marketing activity (this can include presenting films that we have selected to the press). The filmmaker gives us the right to use the name of the film, the images submitted for the uses listed. We also inquire if the filmmaker wants to screen their film at tours or similar activities; as we often get asked to provide guest spots at other festivals and events.

The filmmaker is also responsible for submitting the screening materials at least four weeks before the festival. If the screening will be a world premiere, please let us know as we will do our best to promote to the local community, and please keep us abreast of your production and marketing activities!

    Great festival run by a great group of people. Tons of communication from staff. They created a great online festival that allowed filmmakers to showcase their work and connect with each other.

    It was a honour to have our film PLUTO screened alongside some of the best SciFi films from around the world. The Festival was virtual this year, due to covid. The Miami SciFi team went all out with online interviews, networking, and social media. I highly recommend this festival to SciFi filmmakers. I hope to attend in person one day.

    A huge thanks to Troy and his team for including us in this wonderful festival. Troy is so passionate about sci fi and supporting filmmakers worldwide in this genre. The networking opportunities and information sharing Troy facilitated (despite a virtual fest) went above and beyond! The Girl on the Moon is a proud recipient of the Russell Bates Award. You absolutely must enter your sci fi masterpiece into this festival!

    An amazing festival, run by people who are truly passionate about the genre and filmmaking, and really take the time to personally engage with every filmmaker who participates in the festival. Highly recommended for anyone with a science fiction film or unproduced script!!! One of the few festivals to create a sense of community and networking during a 100% virtual event, I hope I can return with a future project for an in person Miami SciFi festival.
