Shriekfest is Accepting Submissions
(released 1/18/2019)

Shriekfest, the Los Angeles Horror/SciFi Film Festival continues its tradition as Los Angeles' premier horror film event, presenting an exciting program of films each fall with beautiful Los Angeles as its backdrop. Now, in its 19th year, Shriekfest L.A takes place at the legendary Raleigh Studios, which is the largest independent studio operator in the country.  Shriekfest Orlando (now in its 3rd year) takes place at the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center in Sanford.  Both established and emerging filmmakers gain media exposure, connect with the region's diverse audiences, and participate in an acclaimed event attended by industry professionals as well as horror and sci-fi fans. Every film accepted into Shriekfest has the opportunity to screen on both coasts for the price of one admission.

They are looking for original films and screenplays in five categories: narrative feature, narrative short, narrative super short, music video, feature screenplay, and short screenplay. And these genres:  horror, comedy horror, thriller, sci-fi, and fantasy.

They will be awarding prizes to the winning filmmaker or screenwriter in each category.

Festival Founder and Director Denise Gossett says, "We are already planning some exciting things for our 19th year!"

Last year's festival was a great success. They had their biggest audience yet and had more than 65 filmmakers/screenwriters in attendance.
