MidWest WeirdFest opens entries for 2019 fest

by Phil Wheat


MidWest WeirdFest, the cinematic celebration of all things fantastic, frightening, underground and just plain weird has announced a call for entries today, for the third annual film festival – which will return to the Micon Downtown Cinema in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, from March 8-10, 2019.

Says Peter Marcy (pictured above), the director of the horror feature film Attack of the Tattie-Bogle, that screened at the 2018 event:

MidWest WeirdFest was unforgettable. Festival director Dean Bertram was a pleasure to meet and a champion of our movie. Leading up to the fest, he maximized anticipation and got us a 25-minute podcast interview, two reviews by critics, a newspaper article, and tons of social media exposure. The fest itself was great. The venue had an old theater charm that I thought had been lost forever. The crowd was warm and enthusiastic and gave some whoops and applause when the end credits rolled. We had a lively Q&A afterward that I didn’t want to end. And downtown Eau Claire was delightful with numerous restaurants and coffee shops within blocks of the theater. I loved my experience and hope to return.

MidWest WeirdFest is now accepting submissions in the following categories: Feature films, Documentary films, Short films, Animated short films, TV or web content, and Music videos. And this year, the festival introduces two screenplay competitions: One for feature length screenplays, and one for short screenplays.
