The Fan Boy Film Festival Open Call for Entries.

The Fan Boy Film Festival is an online film festival for filmmakers who want to share their art with fans and interact with other filmmakers.

Fan Boy is awarding a $10,000 Grand Prize for the Best Film.

If you are a filmmaker, SUBMIT your film NOW! There is NO SUBMISSION FEE.

Fan Boy Film Festival accepts features, documentaries, shorts, student films, web series, trailers, music videos and original trailers in the following genres: science fiction, drama, comedy, fantasy, horror, action, animation, superhero, fan film, fandom related genres and many more. We want it ALL. If you see it at a Comic Con or on the internet then it belongs on Fan Boy!

Understanding that the times have changed, Fan Boy has created a special category for BEST FILM MADE ON A SMART PHONE OR TABLET ($5,000 Prize).

Fan Boy has also created the Best Meme Contest ($1,000 Prize). Submit your best Memes. Who doesn't love a good Meme?

The creators of the Fan Boy Film Festival love movies and everything pop culture. From Citizen Kane to Bloodsport. From Goonies to 12 Years a Slave. Goodfellas and Godfather to Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Wars. Movies rock!

And you know what rocks more? The filmmakers who take a chance to be creative and make films. The creators of the Fan Boy Film Festival have years of experience in film distribution and understand the filmmaker mindset. They respect filmmakers and want to praise new and innovative films. Fan Boy loves filmmakers who are passionate - take everything they've got and put it into their films. That’s why Fan Boy doesn’t believe in stuffy judge boards found at typical film festivals and have decided that the winners should be decided entirely by fan votes. Fan Boy believes films are great regardless of subjective metrics and that the fans should be the judges.

Sure you can save your project and enter all the traditional film festivals, but why spend all that money on submission fees, travel and airfare - and still get rejected? Just to say you were part of the Hollywood process of politics and BS? At the Fan Boy Film Festival there are no politics. We don't charge filmmakers a submission fee. We don't even charge viewers to watch your films. The experience is 100% FREE. No politics and no BS with an easy upload process and an enjoyable experience.

Online film festivals are the wave of the future. Be part of the future with Fan Boy.

Even after the festival is over - you can house your film on the Fan Boy servers for free and take part in the rev-share off the ads we play on the films. We let you decide.

Are you a filmmaker with a great piece? Do you love films? Then the Fan Boy Film Festival is the place for you. Stream great new films, vote and share the experience.
