MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Wizard World is proud to present the first annual Wizard World Film Festival, a film festival for the independent filmmaker who wants to share his or her vision with pop culture aficionados. Our goal is to showcase the talent of local and national filmmakers in all genres.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Wizard World Film Festival will be held in conjunction with the
2013/2014 Wizard World Comic Con tour and will take place during each convention in a separate space within the venue. Films will be screened over the course of the 3-4 day Comic Con.

Prizes will be awarded to the top films in each city and the Official Selection and category winners will be screened at remaining shows on the tour. These films will also be advertised on the Wizard World website (receives over 800,000 views monthly) and social media outlets.
