Festival Submission Rules - Please read in full before submitting.

If you are submitting via mail-in hard copy submission, be sure to select only one genre for your project. If you are submitting via one of the online platforms, when submitting your project, be sure to e-mail us at with your selected genre: fantasy; horror; horror-comedy; sci-fi; slasher; suspense-thriller; TV pilot; Web Episode.

There are NO restrictions as to when your script was completed or where it has been released. Anyone may enter the competition. All entries must receive an average score of 85 or above in the judging process to qualify for award placement.

If you are submitting your script via e-mail, please ensure that it is a .PDF. (.DOC will be accepted, but .PDF is preferred.) No other file formats will be accepted.

If you are submitting your script via hard copy in the mail, we request that you also send your script by e-mail as a .PDF. (This is not a requirement but is preferred.)

Hard copies are NOT returned, unless you clear this with the festival administration from the beginning. In order to have your hard copy returned to you (after the festival) you MUST send an SASE along with your script - not separately or after.

If your project qualifies for an award, you or a direct representative from your project must be in attendance at the festival in order to receive any physical awards. Non-attending winners will be e-mailed award certificates after the event.

All submissions - whether accepted or not - come with ONE complimentary 4-day event pass to the festival, for the submitter OR their official project representative. Any additional passes must be purchased in advance or at the door.

You may withdraw your submission at any time, but there are no refunds on submissions.
