The 1st Annual Syracuse Sci-Com Film Festival is a two day event which focuses solely on Science Fiction ,Fantasy and Anime films from around the world! 

This event was created with the mindset of a comic book convention without the overcrowded vendor floors! This festival will have live panels, cos-play, special guests, and of course dozens of screenings of both fan flicks and original content!

The Syracuse Sci-Com Film Fest aims to bring the highest level of excellence in the genre and not forget why we love this unique cinematic art form. 
And for those who don't have a film made but who may have a fantastic idea, we will have a "3 minute pitch" contest! The winner will have the ability to option their film to be made!
Also we will be hosting a networking cocktail hour which will take place before the scheduled screenings. Any filmmakers in attendance will be invited to participate in an audience Q & A after the screening.
