They offer filmmakers and film fans alike an ideal setting in 2 world-famous cities. 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!  Over the past Seventeen years, Shriekfest has welcomed numerous indie icons into its family and they are always looking to add to the Shriekfest Family!

Festival Founder and Director Denise Gossett said,

“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, and short screenplay. And these genres:  horror, comedy horror, thriller, sci-fi, and fantasy

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

“We are already planning some exciting things for our 18th year!”.

Last year’s festival was a great success, with record attendance and more than 55 filmmakers/screenwriters in attendance.  Plus, they were able to introduce some amazing indie horror films to Los Angeles and Orlando!
