Welcome to the 10th annual FilmQuest Festival!
Gaining rave reviews as one of the very best festivals in the country, genre or otherwise, for its quality of selections, great events, bevy of attending filmmakers, the highly coveted and prestigious Cthulhu Trophy, and as one of MovieMaker Magazine’s “50 Bloody Best Genre Fests in the World” (2021 & 2019) and five-times named one of their “Top 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” (2023, 2022, 2021, 2017, 2015), and also as one of Dread Central’s “Best Horror Festivals in the World” in both 2022 and 2021, FIlmQuest celebrates the majesty and might of genre filmmaking in the realms of fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and the beyond (including action, thriller, western, kung-fu, and more). The 2023 season will continue this great tradition of celebrating the world’s greatest genre filmmaking in our beautiful home of Utah, where FilmQuest has been named 6 times running (2018 – 2023) as Utah’s Best of State film festival!
FilmQuest has been designed specifically to cater to the empowerment of the filmmaker through various events, awards, swag, connections, and more. In creating the festival, we thought long and hard about what it is that makes a festival great. We asked ourselves the tough questions. What we’ve come up with is, we believe, a festival experience that is the kind most filmmakers dream about.
The Juries will award our filmmakers in over 45 individual categories. Our selection committee is also made up of a group of industry professionals from various fields, such as directors, actors, producers, professors, writers, animators, casting directors, and more.
Want more? We will also be hosting exclusive parties, panels, and more! So get involved today and consider becoming a part of one of the most exciting film festivals to emerge on the circuit in years! We look forward to seeing your submissions!
