Shriekfest Film Festival Celebrates 19th Anniversary September 26-29 at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood and its 3rd year in Orlando, FL on Nov 2nd!
The annual Los Angeles competition will kick off with a public party September 26th.
The Shriekfest Film Festival, an international horror/sci-fi film and screenplay competition, has announced its annual event will take place September 26-29, 2019. The festival begins with an opening night party on Thursday, which the public is welcome to attend. Then, it will continue its tradition of screening feature length and short films Friday through Sunday at the iconic Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, and culminate with an awards presentation on Sunday night.
Shriekfest was created in July 2001 by festival director Denise Gossett and has grown into the longest-running, one of the largest horror and sci-fi film festivals in the country, and the only bi-coastal horror film festival! Since its inception, Shriekfest has offered young and upcoming writers, actors, and producers a chance to have their work screened and rated by peers. Many past winners have gone on to write, produce, or star in major motion pictures.
In addition to exposure, the festival awards its participants with a number of recognitions and prizes. Submissions for narrative feature, narrative short, narrative super short, feature screenplay, and short screenplay are eligible to win awards.
