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.

Once a film is officially accepted to the festival, the filmmaker can no longer withdraw it from the festival lineup. 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 production and marketing activities!

Miami International Science Fiction Film Festival is hereby granted the right to utilize an excerpt (about 1 minute or less) from any film submitted and accepted for exhibition at the Festival for promotional purposes. The individual or corporation submitting the film hereby warrants that it is authorized to commit the film for screening, and understands and accepts these requirements and regulations.

    This is an epic festival! The communication right from when KITAMBO our short sci fi film was selected was awesome. It was a short notice but we got the right support and encouragement from the festival that enabled us get an expedited visa processing. We got to meet amazing filmmakers from around the world and the festival offered us the right space to network and learn from each other. There were also special workshops on marketing and Augmented Reality. It was the first time watching our film on a big screen and this was the biggest screen with amazing sound we could have ever imagined at the newest cinema in downtown Miami, the Silverspot Cinema. We were very happy when we got selected and nominated in Afrofuturism category. However, winning the Best Afrofuturism film award, Best Supporting actor in sci fi short award and the Beacon Award for the first film from Kenya at the event was beyond our wildest dreams. This is truly one of the most epic festivals around that supports filmmakers from across the globe. Thank you Troy, Edward and Eric.

    MiSciFi was an incredible fest with terrific people involved and we were so honored to be invited to screen. I left 'Hospitality' blank (that is not zero stars) because I was unable to attend this year and don't know what the arrangements would have been like but otherwise it was wonderful and we are hoping to attend again in the future.

    This festival is awesome. Troy and his team love science fiction films and it shows. They really have created a community of filmmakers and fans that support and enjoy all facets of sci-fi films. There was a sense of kindred spirit and collaboration here that you don't see at many film festivals. On top of that, they really put on a festival that is not just about screening sci-fi films, but supporting and advancing the craft, with great presentations on marketing and the latest technology and sessions with marketing professionals to help their filmmakers succeed. You don't just get a screening, you get a vast network of support. And the venue is amazing, a state-of-the-art theater with a huge screen -- you will be hard-pressed to find another festival where your movie will look and sound better. Thank you Troy and team for a wonderful screening and experience. I not only had a great screening of my film to a very enthusiastic audience, but I made new friends and learned a lot as well.
