Submission deadlines and guest list revised to coincide with the May 26-28 Famous Monsters Convention in Dallas, Texas.

Silver Scream Film and Comic Festival will be taking its second year on vacation — to Texas.

Normally held in Santa Rosa and originally scheduled for February, the Famous Monsters and Cosmic-Con® event will instead run for three days at the Dallas Sheraton Hotel alongside the Famous Monsters Convention.

“Due to scheduling conflicts, we’ve decided to move the festival to Dallas,” said Philip Kim, Cosmic-Con Producer and Publisher of Famous Monsters. “Luckily, the large number of submissions will be better accomodated by this location, and holding the festival alongside a convention will increase the number of potential participants.”

The submission deadlines for Silver Scream will be extended two months to allow for local Dallas writers’ and filmmakers’ participation, and future guest announcements will be made to coincide with convention events.

Silver Scream will return to Santa Rosa in 2018.
