Phoenix Comicon Film Festival 2017

Submissions open September 15th, 2016

The Phoenix Comicon Film Festival is the state of Arizona’s premier festival for genre fare, part of Phoenix Comicon, a pop culture experience like no other!

 With four days of non-stop feature films and shorts you will witness the talents of filmmakers around the world. We welcome not only genre fare such as horror, science fiction and fan films, but also feature documentaries, international films, comedy, drama, crime thrillers, animation, family films, student films, and music videos.

Our convention and festival has been around for over a decade and continues to grow and gain more notice from the film community. Featuring filmmakers from the southwest, Hollywood, and the world we are a great place to showcase your films! 

With only a small non-refundable entry fee, your film may be screened at the largest pop culture event in the Southwest.
