Scares That Care is a non-competitive festival running for the past 8 years.
The Scares That Care Film Festival celebrates the artistry of independent cinema to raise funds for children and families which are supported through “Scares That Care,” a 501(c)(3) charity organization.
This event is held every year as part of the Scares That Care Authorcon Convention. Attendees of the convention come to meet authors from various genres and past guests have included Johnathan Janz, Ronald Malfi, and is hosted by Horror Legend Brian Keene.
The festival is open to all attendees of Authorcon II as part of their ticket. 100% of the submission fees go directly to families and children we support!
Each year we screen a collection of short films and features that fall into the realm of Horror/Thriller, Sci-Fi, and their many subgenres. We've screened films ranging from the incredibly disturbing to the incredibly hilarious and everything in between.
