*From the press release


Contact: Denise Gossett, 

(Los Angeles, CA)

Shriekfest, the Los Angeles Horror/SciFi Film 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. Now, in its 15th year, Shriekfest takes place at the legendary Raleigh Studios, which is the largest independent studio operator in the country. We offer filmmakers and film fans alike an ideal setting in a world-famous city. 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 scifi fans. Over the past Fifteen years, Shriekfest has welcomed numerous indie icons into its family.

We are looking for original films and screenplays. We are accepting films/screenplays in five categories: narrative feature, narrative short, narrative super short, feature screenplay, and short screenplay.

After 15 years, Shriekfest has decided to add a NEW category and we are very excited about it. "We wanted to come up with a category that would allow more people to be involved and receive exposure in the festival." said Denise Gossett, Festival Founder and Director.  "Most filmmakers don't have a project to submit every year and this will allow everyone to be involved in the festival."  This new category will cover demo reels from anyone in the industry:  directors, producers, editors, actors, writers, sound design, visual fx, makeup, etc.  Most industry people have a demo reel and many have trouble getting people to watch it.  This new category  allows industry people to judge it and then the top demo reels will screen at the festival!  Prizes and a trophy will be awarded to the winner! 

Demo reels can be any genre and must be 2 min or less.

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

Last year's festival was a great success. We had our biggest audience yet, with a 20% increase over the previous year and more than 35 filmmakers in attendance.

HOW TO ENTER Entry form and information:

We look forward to seeing your film!
