MidWest WeirdFest, the cinematic celebration of all things fantastic, frightening, underground and just plain weird announces its 4th annual call for entries today. The film festival will return to the Micon Downtown Cinema in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, from March 6-8, 2020.
“I’m so glad I went to the festival with our film,” says Ted Michaels writer and director of TANGOBORN MENCLENTY, the hilarious comedy/sci-fi feature that won the “Best Sci-Fi Film” award at the 2019 event.
“I can’t say enough good things about festival director Dean Bertram and what he’s done with WeirdFest. It’s a truly independent film festival for truly independent film makers. That should be the norm for film festivals, but the reality is that it isn’t. Most films at most festivals are sourced right from studios. Dean actually watches all his submissions. His picks are based on quality and if they fit the weird vibe of his festival, and If you have a work of originality, your submission fee will not be wasted here. I’ll always be thankful that Midwest WeirdFest exists!”
MidWest WeirdFest is now accepting submissions in the following categories: Feature films, Documentary films, Short films, Animated short films, TV or web content, and Music videos.
The festival also hosts two screenplay competitions: One for feature length screenplays, and one for short screenplays.
