BIG NEWS for aspiring filmmakers! 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 it’s 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 famous Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, which was originally founded in 1923!

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 scifi fans. Every film accepted into Shriekfest has the opportunity to screen on both coasts for the price of one admission!

We are looking for original films and screenplays. We are accepting films/screenplays in five categories:

  • narrative feature
  • narrative short
  • narrative super short
  • music video
  • feature screenplay
  • short screenplay.

And these genres: horror, comedy horror, thriller, sci-fi, and fantasy. Prizes will be awarded to the winning filmmaker or screenwriter in each category. Last year, Shriekfest had its biggest audience yet with more than 65 filmmakers/screenwriters in attendance.
