Cleveland ScreamFest Kickoff Campaign

The inaugural Cleveland ScreamFest will take place October 1st-3rd, 2021 at Atlas Cinemas at Shaker Square.



Our three day festival will showcase short films, features, and screenplays, all in the horror genre. 

In addition, we're going to have film and acting workshops for festival attendees, film panels, parties, and Q&A sessions with the filmmakers.

To put on a great event takes a lot of support from the community, and some solid funding. This is where we need your help!

We're bootstrapping this first year, which means the organizers are raising all the funds or kicking it in themselves. If we have a successful first year, we're more likely to get grants and sponsorship money in future years. 

This initial fundraising campaign will cover expenses like the following:

• website fees
• nonprofit filing fees
• filmmaker awards
• film program printing

Any funds raised beyond our goal will be put back into the event to help pay for workshops, travel for out of town filmmakers, and other event expenses.

By supporting us in our first year, you'll be helping to bring a first class film event to Cleveland, which will mean more opportunities for Cleveland filmmakers .
