Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival, 21–24 July 2016
The Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival (CCI-IFF) is now accepting submissions for its 2016 festival, to be held July 21-24 during Comic-Con International at the San Diego Convention Center. The deadline for entries is February 1, 2016.
Judged by a panel of industry luminaries, the CCI-IFF accepts genre-related films in the following categories: Action/Adventure, Animation, Comics-Oriented, Documentary (Pop Culture–Related), Horror/Suspense, Humor, and Science Fiction/Fantasy. Awards and prizes will be given out at Comic-Con, with film screenings all four days of the event.
Films submitted should be in one of the following categories:
• Documentary (limited to genre and pop culture topics)
• Science Fiction/Fantasy
All films will be shown via video projection in a Convention Center style meeting room, not in a theater. The room seats approximately 300 people. Preferred format for screening is DVD, NTSC, Region 1. We cannot accept 35mm films. HD-DVD screening capabilities are NOT available.
If your film is accepted, free 4-day professional memberships will be granted to those appearing to discuss the film (limit 3), plus one adult guest membership for each speaker. Children under 12 are admitted free with an adult membership.
All scheduling of accepted films is at the discretion of the Festival programmers. Please do not specify days or timeslots that you may prefer. Films will be shown during regular daytime hours of Comic-Con International and during nighttime programming hours.
Submitted films cannot be returned unless you provide a selfaddressed, postage-paid envelope. Please send copies, not your original film.
