AnomalyCon is well-known for being a home for Steampunks and all walks of science fiction. We thrive on invention and innovation, and so the only logical next step is to hold our own film festival!
Yes, a special event is coming to AnomalyCon next year and YOU can help make the Silver Steam Film Festival great–and win prizes and the Golden Cog while you’re at it! We are partnering up with Girls of Geek12 to bring you this awesome event, to expand AnomalyCon’s horizons AND give budding filmmakers or professional filmmakers a chance to have their hard work seen!
The criteria for this event are as follows:
We are dividing the festival by category and by length. Short Films can be anywhere from 10-30 minutes while features can be 30 minutes or longer.
We are looking for entries in Horror, Science Fiction, Fantasy (urban fantasy is OK) and Steampunk.
Your entry does need to be in high definition, since we want to show off your incredible work in the best quality out there.
If your film would be considered Rated R, we do need know in advance why when you submit it.
For this year only we will accept submissions of films we have previously screened (priot to AnomalyCon 2015), since the judges will not have seen them.
Your film must adhere to our harassment policy.
Finally, the only people that can submit a feature to this festival, are the people involved with the production. That also means anything submitted in your film, you must own any and all applicable copyrights, this includes music and the like and by submitting the film you agree to let Anomaly Con screen the film, with no further obligations.
Now that we have the rules out of the way, we’re ready to see your work! We want to get as many entries in as early as possible so that we can determine the lineup and publish everything in our online and physical programs for 2015. We ask that you submit a full length digital copy via Google Drive to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to submit a hard copy via DVD or thumb drive, email the same address for more information on where to send the hard copy.
The cut off for entries is the last week of February so we can get your films into the schedule for AnomalyCon 2015 and to give you plenty of time to fine tune your masterpiece. Oh, and we probably should mention…this isn’t just for fun. There will be awards for the best films in their respective categories! A panel of judges will examine each film and vote on the winner in each length category (and each genre if we receive enough submissions) to receive a Golden Cog.
We can’t wait to see what amazing motion pictures you have put together and we wish you the best of luck on being best in show next year at The Silver Steam Film Festival!
