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!
