The Phoenix Comicon Film Festival is back for 2013 and is now accepting entries. The Film Festival accepts films of any length (from shorts to feature length), type (documentary, fan film, narrative, web series, etc.), and almost any genre(science fiction, steampunk, horror, fantasy, etc.).
The Phoenix Comicon Film Festival is in its ninth year and has been growing steadily since its inception. For the 2012 Film Festival last year, we experienced amazing growth with over 120 submissions from 14 different countries and our submissions from Arizona filmmakers more than doubled! We hope to continue this growth while improving the filmmaker and viewer experience each year.
Primarily a competition film festival, The Festival will give out awards in several different categories, such as “Best of Festival,” “Best of” each film type, and “Best of” each genre.
Time is Short! The submission deadline has been moved up this year and submissions will only be accepted through January 31st.
All submissions will be screen by Phoenix Comicon staff and Filmmakers will be informed if submissions were acceptance by the end of February.
Phoenix Comicon is the signature pop culture event of the southwest.
