The Midwest Monster Film Fest is the first horror film festival in the Quad Cities area, which consists of Moline & Rock Island of Illinois, and Davenport & Bettendorf of Iowa, along the mighty Mississippi River. It is open to the public, and local patrons are encouraged to come! It is our goal to provide a showcase for indie filmmakers who will have the opportunity to have their work seen and appreciated by fellow horror lovers, scored by a panel of judges where the top films win an award, as well as the chance to network with others in the field. The film festival takes place on Septmber 3rd & 4th 2021, during the second annual Midwest Monster Fest horror covention, held at The Rust Belt in East Moline, IL. This 3 day event features celebrity guests and panel discussions, an fx competition, a cosplay contest, vendors galore, an awards ceremony for the winning filmmakers, and an after party to celebrate the fest. This year's guests include C.J. Graham, Linnea Quigley, Thom Matthews, Richie Ramone, Rob Mello, Marc Price, Clint Howard, and more!!! If you're film is selected, you and any cast/crew will receive free admission. We would love for you to come speak about your film.
