Congrats 2020 AWARD WINNERS!


We want to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Something Wicked Film Festival 2020 Online Festival Event!  It was a weekend of amazing short and feature films in addition to the live Panel Discussions, Filmmaker Interviews and Live Chat through Discord!  We had a lot of fun and my team and I hope you did too.


If you are not already aware, SWFF gives out awards in two categories – our Main Award category and our secondary category Festival Director Awards.  The difference between the two is that our Main Awards winners are chosen by our Festival Judge Philip Wray and his Jury Members (whom are made up of film critics and film professionals).  Our Festival Director Awards are chosen between my staff and myself and are usually the more outlandish categories (i.e. Scream Queen of the Year, Bad Ass of the Year, Goriest Film, etc.) and are revealed on Friday whereas the Main Awards are announced on Sunday.

 

Below are our Winners for both award Categories!  We congratulate all filmmakers and look forward to what they have in store for us in the future:
