The mission of Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival is twofold: to bring the best independently produced Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Thriller, Cult, Animation and Fan films from around the world to Western New York, and to spotlight the best local genre film productions and filmmakers.

Over the course of three years, founding festival directors Gregory Lamberson and Chris Scioli built Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival into a respected international film festival.  Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival allows them to expand their programming to show more films from more genres, with the same commitment to celebrating excellence in independent filmmaking.

Buffalo Dreams will present short, medium, and feature length films in the coolest genres known to mankind. We want the best indie films available and aim to be a filmmaker friendly festival that showcases Buffalo, New York at its best.  We’ll announce our Call for Entries soon; submissions will be through Without a Box.   Follow us on this website, on Twitter, and on Facebook.
