In submitting an animation, entrants will not hold Famous Monsters of Filmland, Movieland Classics, LLC, American Gothic Press, LLC, Silver Scream Film and Comic Festival, SR Entertainment Group, or its officers, employees, or affiliates accountable for coincidental similarities to works-in-progress or other submissions.

Each entry must be accompanied by a completed entry form and applicable entry fees. Entries must be submitted in digital format. Foreign language work must be dubbed or subtitled in English.

All submissions are subject to reviews and rejection.

It is kindly requested, though not obligatory, that any awards received be mentioned in the promotional materials or websites of the submissions being awarded.

All submissions are handled fairly and equally. We encourage you to submit as early as possible.

All entries will be viewed by the selection committee. The Festival will make no cuts or changes. All winners will be notified by email.

Selected entries will also be posted on our website. The festival does not pay rental fees for submitted work. If selected, exhibition format will be provided.

Submissions will be viewed only after your entry fee is received and paid in full.
