The award-winning DEAD CHANNELS FILM FESTIVAL is Northern California's premier celebration of independent and international fantastic filmmaking. The Festival brings entertaining and intelligent science-fiction, fantasy, horror, action, exploitation and a few weird unclassifiable cinematic gems to audiences in the Bay Area.

Our inaugural 2007 festival along with our 2008 Summer series -- White Hot 'N' Warped Wednesdays -- paved the path to being awarded the 2008 Best of the Bay by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. The 2008 festival runs from October 2 - 9th and San Franciscans are already brimming with anticipation and excitement.

Dead Channels will showcase a diverse selection of amazing fantastic films from around the globe -- often presented by the artists who made them. World and U.S. premieres will play alongside global festival favorites and select retrospective titles. The programming ranges from classic science fiction and fantasy to the defiantly non-mainstream adult offerings we unveil at midnight. Incredible movies, outrageous parties, and the City of San Francisco itself, guarantee a truly memorable week-long celebration of mind-bending fantastic films.
