Shriekfest is an international festival and screenplay competition dedicated to getting horror/thriller/sci-fi/fantasy filmmakers and screenwriters the recognition they deserve. What makes our festival unique is that we proactively help the filmmakers and screenwriters by promoting their work to the industry.

Romero, Joe Dante, and Roger Corman in “Nightmares in Red, White, and Blue”, Billy Zane in “Surviving Evil”, and Tiffany Shepis in “Thirsty”.

The roster encompasses 40 films and 39 screenplay finalists.  Awards will be awarded in many categories, including an award for the Best Feature Film and Best Under 18 film/screenplay.
