Join us as we bring the Panic! to Kansas City. Held in the historic Screenland Armour theater our film festival features 20+ horror, thriller and sci-fi films. Bringing you films weeks in advance - some of the films we debuted in previous festivals include Elijah Wood’s Maniac remake, Flight of the Conchords' What We Do in the Shadows, Dark Was the Night and many more. In addition to our feature film lineup we also host a short film showcase that attendees vote for the best of fest. This year we are adding live podcasts to the fest along with Q&A sessions. Take a break from the action and check out some of our amazing vendors in the loft.

We are now accepting short films under 20 minutes for consideration in our 2018 Short Film Showcase. Horror, thriller, comic, sci-fi hell even your best furry snuff films will be considered.
