Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival is calling for entries for its 2014 edition, which will run from Friday, November 7th - Thursday, November 13th. The festival celebrates multiple genres - science fiction, fantasy, horror, action, thriller, animation, cult and fan films - in three divisions: National, International and Western New York.


The foundation to any good narrative film is a strong screenplay, and Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival is holding this Original Screenplay competition to encourage quality independent filmmaking. We are looking for feature length submissions (at least 85 pages) in the following genres: science fiction, fantasy, horror, action, thriller and cult/bizarro. Please note that action can include crime drama, western, war and martial arts subject matter. We require a PDF for each submission. We will award certificates for first, second and third places. Our nominating committee will include festival director Gregory Lamberson, who is a published author and has directed several of his own screenplays, and we plan to enlist a professional screenwriter to make the final selections. 


The mission of the festival is to bring the best independent films from around the world to Buffalo, New York, and to celebrate the work of the most talented regional filmmakers. In 2013, Buffalo Dreams screened 85 films from around the world: 26 features, 59 shorts, 27 international films, and 13 Western New York productions. Thirty filmmakers visited Buffalo to attend the event.
