Exhibit booths are available at discounted rates for Filmmakers who submit. All exhibitors will be included in the festival’s massive PR campaign, and numerous media outlets will have a presence at the convention, making it a great opportunity for exposure.

SplatterFest, known for their weekend short film competition, began in 2010, producing 18 films with over 250 filmmakers, drawing an attendance of over 2000 at the Alamo Drafthouse West Oaks. SplatterFest will return in the fall of 2011 with its annual short film competition.
