Wow. In 2016, we had 1275 submissions. Yes, 1275! Of those, we booked 11 features and 41 shorts. With so many great films, we expanded the programming to include animation including Battledream Chronicle and Reveries of a Solitary Walker. Scrawl stars Daisy Ridley, fresh from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve also created a “PG-13 Animated and Dark Fantasy” shorts program which we’re calling It’s Only A Nightmare, Charlie Brown. This year’s scope also expands internationally. Twenty-five countries are represented in 2016 such as Slovenia, Puerto Rico, Iran, Latvia, Cyprus, and on and on. And there’s much more included this year than just our traditional horror and sci-fi. As always, none of this would have been possible without the help of our tremendous Programming Committee who spent months tirelessly reviewing all of the selections. It’s our best year ever.
2016 Programming Committee: Stacey Weger (Chair), Cookie Beyah, Melissa Browning, Sarah Preston, Amanda Raya, Chris Santucci, Wendy Webber, Derek Easley and Curtis Greeson.
