Shriekfest 2014 Horror Film Festival Competition

Shriekfest, the Los Angeles Horror/SciFi Film Festival is currently accepting entries for the 2014 Filmmaking and Screenplay competition. The 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.

The organizers offer filmmakers and film fans alike an ideal setting in a world-famous city. Shriekfest draws in over 5,000 attendees each year.

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. Over the past thirteen years, Shriekfest has welcomed numerous indie icons into its family.

The organizers are looking for new and original films and screenplays in six categories:

  • narrative feature,
  • narrative short,
  • narrative super short,
  • feature screenplay,
  • short screenplay, and
  • original song.

The Festival will be awarding prizes to the winning filmmaker in each category.

Last year’s festival was a great success with a 20% audience increase over the previous year and more than 35 filmmakers in attendance.

Now, in its 14th year, Shriekfest takes place at the legendary Raleigh Studios, which is the largest independent studio operator in the USA.
