2016 FHFF Screenplay Competition

Please Note: FANtastic Horror Film Festival does not waive entry fees. FHFF believes waiving entry fees hurts the integrity of the competition. The same rules and entry fees should apply to all applicants so no one is favored over another. In a similar respect, FHFF does not invite screenplays to be in competition,only screenplays submitted will be considered for competition. We understand the financial constraints and costs of submitting to Festivals and we still hope you can find it in your budget to submit your screenplay.
