The Minneapolis Underground Film Festival teams up with Wizard World Comic Con, the world’s largest pop culture convention, for a 90 minute film presentation from their festival archives.
The Minneapolis Underground film festival promises to continue to wow audiences with innovative underground horror and sci-fi films along with music videos by award winning independent directors. Festival director, Mark Hanson explains, “We are so excited to be presenting at Wizard World Comic Con. We look forward to showcasing some great short films and music videos by some wonderful directors”.
MUFF fans can expect to see the same cutting edge programming seen at previous festivals coupled with Wizard World Comic Con’s community fueled costume contests, evening panel programming, live video streaming, top industry exhibitors, retailers, fan groups and exclusive attractions that are staples of the Wizard World experience, providing memorable and long-lasting experiences for attendees of all ages.
Wizard World is proud to announce the Wizard World Film Festival in Minneapolis, to be held in the Minneapolis Convention Center from May 2-4.
The Wizard World film festival will be run alongside Comic Con, a series of pop culture conventions that travels through over a dozen major U.S. cities annually. Exclusive VIP prize packages will be awarded for the top films on each stop of the tour, as well as screening at a number of future Wizard World Film Festivals during the 2014/15 tour.
Winning films will also be advertised on WizardWorld.com, which receives over 800,000 views monthly, as well as other promotion on Wizard World’s popular social media channels. The amount of publicity the winning films will receive with this film festival is enormous with Wizard World’s social reach.
We are looking for short films and music videos less than 20 minutes in length in the sci-fi, fantasy, horror, comedy, comic book and pop culture-themed genres, as well as local filmmakers to submit to the festival in hopes of having them attend the festival and host Q&A sessions after screening their film.
