“Screamfest is celebrating its 13th year this October,” festival founder and director Rachel Belofsky told us, “and it’s already starting off as a big year with [feature films] Thale and American Mary releasing on our Screamfest label via XLrator Media.”

While its October festival dates and location are yet to be released (we will have the skinny on that soon), Screamfest is now accepting submissions in the following film categories for the upcoming 2013 event:

-Feature Films
-Short Films
-Student Films
-Animated Films

The early film submission deadline is June 15th, the regular deadline is July 15th, and the final deadline is August 1st. For more info on film submissions, click here.

The regular deadline is March 15th with the final deadline set for May 15th. The winning script will receives a $1,000 cash prize, Movie Magic Screenwriter software, and the ‘Skully’ award trophy (sculpted by the late Stan Winston). Top four finalists will receive a $250 cash prize, Movie Magic Screenwriter software, and a six-month free Prolific Pro Read Through membership.
