That’s right, folks: after a successful stint in Dallas in 2017, Cosmic-Con and Famous Monsters have announced that the 2018 Silver Scream Film and Comic Festival will be returning home to Santa Rosa!

The dates are set: February 16-18, 2018. The guest announcements are coming!—

But Silver Scream isn’t really about the guests, is it? No. It’s about independent filmmakers and writers like you! We accept entries in six categories: Feature Film, Short Film, Animation, Screenplay, Graphic Novel, and Graphic Novel Script. Our winners have gone on to receive wide distribution with independent promoters — even landing at Cannes! Our graphic novel and script winners are published yearly by American Gothic Press and have received Ghastly Award nominations and many other accolades.

Submission Deadlines

EARLYBIRD DEADLINE: October 17, 2017
