Roswell SciFi Film Fest
Held every year on Independence Day weekend, The Roswell Galacticon is the UFO capital’s version of a “Comic Con”, complete with famous guest personalities, amazing booths full of art and merchandise, fun events for the whole family, and costumes galore!
This cosmically proportioned event started in 2011 and has grown over the years in participation and media coverage, including earning Outstanding New Event of the Year at the 2012 New Mexico Tourism Industry Recognition Awards during the Governor’s Conference on Tourism.
Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell Dean of Media Arts and award winning filmmaker, Alan Trever, heads up the Roswell SciFi Film Fest - the other half of the Con weekend. This unique Film Fest accepts movie submissions from around the world in the SciFi and Fantasy genre that are juried and then compete for several category awards.
The juried films are shown to the public over the weekend and the winners receive award certificates, industry laurels and in some cases, prizes.
