Wizard World, one of the leading producers of Comic Cons and pop culture conventions across North America, and CONtv are proud to present the CON Film Festival. The 2015 film festivals will take place along side Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia, Sacramento, Chicago, and Austin.

Our mission is to showcase the next generation of pop culture entertainment. Winners of the CON Film Festival will not only receive cash prizes but will be considered for distribution on CONtv. What is CONtv? It is a new digital entertainment network devoted exclusively to the fanspace that provides audiences access to thousands of hours of content showcasing an original slate of programming, as well as an eclectic catalog of over 1,200 must-watch titles.

This is a excellent opportunity for film makers to get the content recognized by their peers in the pop culture space.
