One of the better (yet smaller and more intimate) horror film festivals is California’s Shriekfest, which SpookyDan and I had a blast at last year. Today we were informed that the 6th annual Shriekfest, the Los Angeles International Horror/Thriller/SciFi/Fantasy Film Festival and Screenplay competition is currently accepting submissions for it’s 2006 festival to be held in September. The festival is dedicated to screening and recognizing the works of filmmakers and screenwriters in the often forgotten genres. Superior screening facilities, parties, and panels make this a wonderful networking experience for all. Awards will be given in most categories and prizes include cash, product awards, trophies, etc. See their website for more information and an entry form. Also, check out their news page and see how Shriekfest has helped many filmmakers and screenwriters in the past.
