Our Online Theater is now live!

We’re all about giving independent artists a platform, but due to time constraints with scheduling, that’s not always possible for every film submitted to a festival. This year, Silver Scream Film and Comic fest is introducing an online theater where films that received an Honorable Mention can be viewed and rated by everyone! Our first two films, PORCELAIN and O2 NEGATIVE, are available for viewing and rating now. If you scream loudly enough, the filmmakers may just hear you…

2016’s Best Sci-Fi Feature Winner HACKED Gets Wide DVD Release

In Silver Scream’s debut year of 2016, we awarded the visionary science fiction film CTRL ALT DELETE with the Best Sci-Fi Feature award — and now we are pleased to announce that the film is available for the general public to enjoy! Released March 6, 2018 as HACKED, the film is on VOD and/or DVD from every major retailer, including including iTunes, Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy.

“Obviously it has been quite a journey to get to this point, and I couldn’t be more grateful for how our reception at Silver Scream helped set us up for success,” says director James B. Cox.

2018 Silver Scream Film & Comic Fest Winners List

The 2018 Festival has come and gone, and we had a blast! We hope everyone else did, too. We’d like to thank all of our special guests for being incredibly gracious, our filmmakers and writers for their enthusiastic participation, the cast and crews of our independent features, our volunteers for their tireless work, and all press and attendees who came through the door and created the show through their love for the horror and sci-fi genres.

After three days of genre goodness and makeup demos, we capped it off with an awards ceremony for the indie writers and filmmakers who impressed us the most. So without further ado, we’d like to present our 2018 award winners.
