FilmQuest is a festival of films within the Fantastic genres of filmmaking such as fantasy, horror, sci-fi, etc. It 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.


We’ve created a festival that gives away awe-inspiring awards, fills your bag with the swag a pirate would be envious of, connects you to other filmmakers and celebrities in ways that encourages future collaboration, and offers an event to explore that will be talked about for years to come in FantasyCon.

Prizes include a $5,000 Grand Prize (Best of Fest), a $2,500 2nd Place Best of Fest Prize, and a $1,000 Third Place Best of Fest Prize. These monies will be given to the filmmakers specifically to help you finance your next film project. On top of this, winners will receive our FilmQuest trophy designed exclusively for FilmQuest and produced by the world famous Adonis Bronze, making what we are sure will soon become one of the most coveted awards on the festival circuit, and this is just the beginning.


Major industry professionals are already planning to be a part of the first Grand Jury, which will award our filmmakers in over 30 individual categories. Our selection committee is made up of a group of industry professionals from various fields such as directors, actors, producers, professors, writers, animators, casting directors, and more.


FilmQuest itself is the festival branch of the upcoming FantasyCon, a convention that puts the fantasy experience of the patrons first. It is an interactive convention, where dragons, magic and battle literally come to life. Just as FantasyCon is a celebration of all things Fantasy, from horror to adventure, so is FilmQuest a celebration of all things Fantastic in film.


We encourage you to explore our continuously updated website for new information and updates, such as who is on the Grand Jury, the Selection Committee, the Official Selections, venues, and more.

Finally, we ask you to join us in the journey for this, our first year, and to help us create a rich history that all who become a part of FilmQuest will talk about for years to come, and will prove to be a touching stone for their careers.
