DAPs Magic Disney News – PRESS RELEASE


Entries Accepted Until March 31st 2012

The 2012 Phoenix Comicon Film challenge is looking for entries. This year they invite one and all
to submit to the Film Festival and to the Film Challenge. Have a chance for your film to air at the
convention in front of over 30,000 expected attendees. The film festival accepts entries from many
different genres from Sci-Fi and comedy to documentaries and horror films.

“The Film Festival is a great way to reach new audience members and create recognition for your film”
says Marketing Director Jillian Squires

All films must be under 15 minutes long, and must be premiering at the Phoenix Comicon. Since this is
a family friendly event submissions not suitable for all-ages will be considered for late night screenings.
The Film Festival is open to all filmmakers and creates the opportunity for their work to be seen during
the convention

The Film Challenge is a competition for newly created works to be submitted, reviewed and judged by the
Phoenix Comicon panel. Prizes will vary but each winner’s video will be screened during the convention.
More information on both competitions can be found at https://phoenixcomicon.com/film_festival
