Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival 2015: First Guests and Call for Entries


Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, now entering its third season as the successor to Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival, is calling for entries for original screenplays, music videos, web series, micro-shorts, short films, medium length films, and feature films from around the world in the following genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Comedy, Animation, Thriller, and Fan Films.

The filmmaker-friendly festival runs for one full week in Buffalo, New York, from Friday, November 6th, through Thursday, November 12th, and offers awards in multiple categories.  Debbie Rochon will present her directorial debut, Model Hunger, which was filmed in Buffalo, and horror author Anthony Izzo (Cruel Winter, The Dead Land Trilogy) will judge the original screenplay competition.

“Our programming is split pretty evenly between local, North American, and international films,” says filmmaker and author Greg Lamberson, who co-directs the festival with Chris Scioli.  “We’ve seen a steady increase in attendance by visiting filmmakers, a trend we hope to see continue.  Each year it’s a pleasure to see these dedicated filmmakers supporting each other and present their work to a Buffalo audience with an appreciation for independent genre films.  Debbie’s attended the fest in the past as a visiting actress and as an honorary chair, and this will be her first trip here as a visiting director.  We’re pleased that Anthony Izzo, who has eleven novels and novellas to his credit, has agreed to serve as a judge.”

Filmmakers can submit their work through Without a Box and Film Freeway.

We’ll have more announcements to share soon, and in the meantime keep your eyes on the the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival website.
