MidWest WeirdFest, the cinematic celebration of all things fantastic, frightening, underground and just plain weird announces its call for entries today. The third annual film festival will return to the Micon Downtown Cinema in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, from March 8-10, 2019.
"MidWest WeirdFest was unforgettable." says Peter Marcy the director of the horror feature film ATTACK OF THE TATTIE-BOGLE that screened at the 2018 event. "Festival director Dean Bertram was a pleasure to meet and a champion of our movie. Leading up to the fest, he maximized anticipation and got us a 25-minute podcast interview, two reviews by critics, a newspaper article, and tons of social media exposure. The fest itself was great. The venue had an old theater charm that I thought had been lost forever. The crowd was warm and enthusiastic and gave some whoops and applause when the end credits rolled. We had a lively Q&A afterward that I didn’t want to end. And downtown Eau Claire was delightful with numerous restaurants and coffee shops within blocks of the theater. I loved my experience and hope to return."
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.
And this year, the festival introduces two screenplay competitions: One for feature length screenplays, and one for short screenplays.
