Independent Film Festival

myst100x1001The Mysticon Independent Film Festival shows films that people might not get a chance to see anywhere else, films that are both innovative and crowd-pleasing. It offers the chance to meet the filmmakers and to ask them questions after screening and during film-making panels.

This festival offers a selection of full-length features and short films made outside the Hollywood studio system. We are proud to showcase many local films made in or around the Roanoke Valley.

We are collecting submissions for the 2017 Independent Film Festival. The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2017.  Please review ouIndependent Film Festival Guidelines and consider sending us a Submission Form along with a DVD information form.
