More information regarding this event will be forthcoming. In the meanwhile, feel free to navigate around the site to see last years and previous years of FearCON madness and fun.
Since 2006, FearCON, the Independent Horror Film Festival and Convention, is a community driven event focused on the Independent horror film maker and the horror entertainment industry. Our event is different from most film festivals because of our commitment to the industry of Independent Horror and our mission is to give maximum exposure to the talent and film makers of the independent community.
Winners of the FearCON awards are given the opportunities for distribution (both domestically and internationally) by our partner, a Hollywood distribution company, to gain access and the recognition they so richly deserve; yet because they are usually low budget and unknown, may never get.
In addition, we invite local performers and celebrities for performances and meet/greets with their fans. Our volunteer staff work tirelessly and without compensation to make sure the FearCON is the best event visited by our guests and film makers.
We love to get involved with our community, love Horror films and know what it’s like for a film maker to try to get their film project noticed by any film distributor. Our partnership with Empress Road pictures provides a significant exposure to our film makers and gives them that opportunity to be seen and possibly discovered by a legitimate film company.
The FearCON has grown exponentially over the years, and our fans are very loyal and devoted. Our partner charities are Shanti’s 2nd Chances, St Mary’s Food Bank, Multiple Sclerosis Society, KidTIX and Children’s Hospital. Many of our Artists and Vendors donate one of a kind and collectible items to our silent auction and raffles. All the proceeds of these silent auctions and raffles benefit the charities we support each year.
