Welcome to the official page of the Wasteland Film Festival – the world’s first post-apocalyptic short film competition and exhibition.

Our mission is to showcase films by emerging and established filmmakers that bring post-apocalyptic worlds to life.

Films about the wasteland, shown in the wasteland, at Wasteland Weekend.

1.  For the first time ever, we have a submission fee:  $15 for early, $20 for late.  This will go toward things like prize support. 

2. We will accept waivers.  If you have attended Wasteland Weekend over the last 3 years, or we have shown one of your films in any previous Wasteland Film Festival year, contact us for a fee waiver.

3. Prize support! The grand prize will be $100 US (or a donation to a charity of your choice) and trophies for all of the winners!  Additional money prizes will be awarded to each of the winners depending on the number of entries we get.
