Plus, all films screen for a jury of luminaries in the fields of science fiction and fantasy film, television, and literature. The festival marks the start of these films successes: previous Science Fiction + Fantasy Short Film Festival films have been nominated for Academy Awards, picked up for feature distribution, featured in museum exhibitions, presented at festivals around the world, and received international awards and accolades.
