The Roswell International Sci-Fi Film Festival invites filmmakers working in the science fiction genre to submit their films to be screened at the festival. RISF will be showcasing the latest and greatest Sci-Fi by independent filmmakers in the city that’s been home to some of the most infamous alien landmarks since the 40s, Roswell, New Mexico!
In addition to the film festival, RISF will be hosting an innovative new project, their Sci-Fi/Fantasy Shoot Out! RISF invites screenwriters all over the world to submit a short science fiction or fantasy screenplay, up to 12 pages, to the Shoot Out screenwriting competition. The winner of the screenwriting competition will have their screenplay adapted into a short film over the course of the Roswell International Sci-Fi Film Festival, in a structured, week-long production. The crew will be assembled in industry standard, and provided with state of the art digital equipment and a grant of $1500. The writer of the winning screenplay will have the option to attend the Shoot-Out and take on the role of Director on their short film. This is a fantastic opportunity for new voices in the sci-fi genre to get their stories out in the movie industry!
Entries for the film festival and screenplay entries for the Shoot Out are each $15.00 per entry. You can also register for the Roswell Summer Film Boot-Camp, a 30 day intensive movie-making crash course that includes script writing, casting, shooting, directing, producing and editing.
