SW DocuFest 2022!

Now that the first SW FanFest has ended we are headed straight into our next event which will be the 2022 SW DocuFest on February 26-27th!  We are planning on this event being an In-Person and live event unlike our 2021 event which was a hybrid event in which we screened the “Best of the Festival” films for local audiences and film-makers.

Submissions are now open although our Late Deadline is December 31st so make sure to get your submissions in now!  We look forward to seeing all the film-makers for our 2022 event and for more info visit our website at www.somethingwickedfilmfestival.com

SW FanFest 2021 Award Winners!

All of us at Something Wicked Entertainment and SW FanFest want to congratulate all the recipients of awards for our 2021 event!  Our Festival Judge Philip Wray and his Jury Members had a monumental task viewing and grading all the submissions this year.  Due to the fact that we only had an online only event we were unable to have a physical Awards Ceremony like normal but that does not diminish the importance of the awards.  We hope that every film-maker enjoyed the December 11-12th weekend event and we are looking forward to the 2022 event!

We would like to add that the theme for our 2022 will be on ANIMATION and ACTTION FILMS (and we will adding in THRILLERS as well) and we look forward to all the amazing films that will be submitted next year for our (hopefully) In-Person and physical event!  See you then!

SW FanFest “Best of the Festival” Special Screening!

On December 11th at 7:00 PM, the SW FanFest held a special online only presentation of some of the best films to be offered during the SW FanFest weekend event (December 11-12th)!  These films were chosen by the Something Wicked Entertainment staff and in no way had anything to do with the judging of the Main Awards for the event.  The films chosen were a selection of six films that displayed the key features of what it is meant to be an indie film by film-makers that respect and enjoy entertaining audiences.  The films chosen were:

“I Am the Doorway”

“Jason Rising: A Friday the 13th Fan Film”

“Honor Among Thieves”

“Growing Shadows: The Poison Ivy Fan Film”


“Star Wars: Origins”

We hope that all of these amazing films continue to have an amazing festival run and that audiences everywhere eventually get the chance to see these films.

SW FanFest 2021!

On December 11-12, 2021 we held our very first SW FanFest online festival event!  The goal of the FanFest is to highlight genres of films that don’t always get enough presence at regular film festivals.  As such, our plan is to highlight different genres each year!  For our 2021 event we decided to highlight fan-films (or fan-made-films), westerns, and post-apocalyptic films.  Over the course of the two days audiences were given complete access to all the “official selections” of the event in addition to some other great films.

Due to the current pandemic environment still going on it was decided (late) that this year’s event would be entirely online.  Even though we couldn’t have an in-person and live event this year we hope that our 2022 event will be a physical event.  As a bonus, we decided to have a Special Screening of the “Best of the Festival” films as decided by the staff members of Something Wicked Entertainment.  FYI – this decision was held independent of the Festival Judge Philip Wray and his Jury Members who decide who received the Main Festival Awards.

The “Best of the Festival” Special Screening was held on December 11th at 7:00 pm and consisted of the short films “I Am the Doorway” (a Stephen King fan-film), “Jason Rising: A Friday the 13th Fan Film”, “Honor Among Thieves”, “Growing Shadows: The Poison Ivy Fan Film”, “Wasteland”, and “Star Wars: Origins.”  The event was hosted Co-Festival Director Kevin L Powers.

We hope everyone enjoyed the weekend and saw some amazing films and I’d like to remind everyone to continue to support indie films and film-makers!
