The Magic of Horror has a network of sister festivals and contests.
Please note that Magic of Horror itself does not have any legal or formal associations with any of these festivals other than just a friendly one.
An all-genre film and screenplay competition. While it is set to become a tavern festival in Florida, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced it to remain online-only for the time being. It plans to go live again in 2022.
Siren by the Sea also offers jury scorecards to all its submissions regardless of whether or not they are selected for the festival. Prizes include custom trophies.
The newest addition to our festival sorority, Penned in Blood was designed to be a competition for those who are serious about screen-writing! They accept not only short and feature-length screenplays but also other script marketing materials such as synopsis, first 10 pages, and loglines.
All submissions receive comprehensive feedback geared toward helping the writer to either improve on the work or prepare it for marketing.
