What GeekFest Film Fests does for filmmakers
Unlike anything you’ve ever experienced! We work closely with the conventions to bring not only a film festival event within the con, but we also secure booth space and panels to develop with the convention, which enables our filmmakers to not only screen their films, but they can promote on the Exhibit Floor and speak on special GeekFest Panels at each event.
We work with cons to secure guest passes for filmmakers to attend, and we promote your film all year long…as long as your film is traveling with GeekFest Film Fests, then it’s being promoted on social media.
Our 1st three years GeekFest Film Fests short content was distributued to Stan Lee’s World of Heroes Youtube channel, one of the biggest Geek channels on the platform. With over 300,000 views of our online content to date.
Like traditional film festivals we award our winning filmmakers with amazing prize packages from film making companies and geek companies, to create Best of Fest Prize packages valued at least $3000, plus all feature films are considered for distribution.
Each convention we create a specialized award and prize package and have a Best of Screening and Awards ceremony…You never know what GEEK celeb might present you with your award. Even the largest Cons in the World can’t compete with our prize packages as we have teamed with our long time film festival sponsors to bring you amazing prizes.
