Comicpalooza Film Festival

Activities Film Festival

In its sixth year, Comicpalooza’s Film Festival featured submitted films that have been reviewed and measured against peers in each category. The top films, crossing a wide range of genres, were shown during Comicpalooza’s 3-day festival, May 25-27, 2018. Participating film makers were invited to attend. Prizes were awarded to winners in a number of categories including Best Picture, Best Animated Film, Best Short, and much more. In addition, High School students taking film had the opportunity to submit and showcase their projects.

Comicpalooza guests watched the films at no additional charge, with special restrictions that may have applied for youths under the age of 18. We also featured the classic horror movie: Night of the Living Dead on Saturday night.
