Then WE WANT YOU to help promote SHRIEKFEST, the longest-running horror, sci-fi, and fantasy film and screenwriting competition in Los Angeles!
…an incredibly friendly and supportive atmosphere…one of the great networking festivals…generates industry buzz for my work…a helluva a lot of fun!
…by far the most supportive group of artists I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I have made [many friends and colleagues].
…an incredible showcase for [independent filmmakers] at an awesome venue.
We were so honoured to screen our feature last year in competition - and coming from Australia -we had no idea what to expect! WE WERE BLOWN AWAY…It's what horror sci fi festivals should all be like!
Smart Slider 3 is the best slider that i’ve tried so far. There’s so many useful functions and easy to understand how to use it.
Without [Shriekfest], I might never have made the connections I have…Denise and her festival have opened more doors for me with one contest than several years’ worth of queries!
