Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival


Due to recent inquiries, we would like to clarify that the traditional Comic-Con in-person event in San Diego, normally held in July, has been postponed until summer 2022. However, Comic-Con@Home will return as an online event on July 23-25, 2021.
This fall we’re planning a smaller, supplemental event we’re calling Comic-Con Special Edition, taking place on November 26-28, 2021. It is our hope that by that point, conditions will permit in-person public gatherings of this kind. As details are still being finalized, badge cost, attendance capacity, and related information will be forthcoming.

Due to the pandemic, we have decided to invite participants from the 2020 festival who were selected and have them participate as part of the July 2022 Comic-Con Independent Film Festival. There will not be a film festival as part of the upcoming November Comic-Con Special Edition event. The next opportunity to submit your film will be in the Fall of 2022, for our CCI-IFF 2023 event. Please check back then for more details.
