Founded in 2004, by Frankly Zoe Productions as a one off festival to promote their Youth Summer Movie Program, F3: Frankly Film Fest screened 27 films during their first season. In 2016 Frankly Zoe Productions decided to resurrect F3 in conjunction with the Tenth Anniversary of Un-Con.
In keeping with the "all genres are welcome" theme of the Un-Con, F3 is an all genre festival, with a focus on sci-fi, fantasy, thrillers, animation, and fan films.
For the 2016 festival, we received 685 submissions from 62 countries. Of these, we screened 49 films over the two day festival. For the 2017 festival, we received 477 submissions from 49 countries. We will be screening 73 films spread over two days. For the 2017 festival our panel of judges, all with extensive backgrounds in the independent film industry, will pick the best of the best from all of the submissions.
On Saturday night, when the screenings wrap, awards will be presented for Best Student Film, Best Non-Student Film, Judges Choice, a Special Science Fiction Award, and Best of Fest.
