Famous Monster of Filmland


Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine was established in 1958 as a way to celebrate genre films and unite fans around the world. The magazine has gone on to become one of the most influential entertainment magazines of all time, with a rich and storied history. And while many think of Famous Monsters as purely dedicated to classic monsters, Forry insisted that we “find the next generation of storytellers.” He referenced how he featured a then-unknown teenager named Rick Baker who made monster makeups in his parents’ house, and a young filmmaker named John Landis. Forry always had his eye towards the future.

In 2016, Famous Monsters joined forces with the Santa Rosa Entertainment Group to hold the Silver Scream Film and Comic Festival at the Roxy theatre. 2017 saw the festival expand to Dallas, Texas alongside the Famous Monsters Convention. Now in 2018, we return to Santa Rosa where we'll continue to focus on independent films, shorts, animation, screenplays, and graphic novels.
 
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
 
In 1958, editor Forrest J Ackerman and publisher James Warren set out to make a single magazine, called Famous Monsters of Filmland, that would celebrate the classic films of Universal’s golden horror age. But the issue proved to be such a massive success that it went on to become one of the most popular and influential periodicals of all time. Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, Rick Baker, George Lucas, and much more have all spoken at length about the influence and inspiration the magazine brought to their creative development.
The magazine made a point to not just honor classic films and provide details on new and upcoming projects, it also contained tips and tricks for readers on how to create their own monster and Sci-Fi films. From filming secrets to basic makeup and blood effects, FM became a “how-to” for aspiring storytellers.
Before iconic editor Forrest J Ackerman passed away in 2008, he was very clear that as we continued with FM, it was our duty to find the new talent, the storytellers that would capture the imaginations of audiences for generations to come. And that is exactly what Silver Scream Film & Comic Festival intends to do.
For its third year, Silver Scream Fest will once again be accepting graphic novel submissions as well as films and animation. The comic book and film industries have become increasingly intertwined, as much of what dominates the box office has been adapted from the paneled page. By opening the Festival up to comic book artists and writers, FM will be able to dip into a much broader creative pool and offer exclusive publishing contracts through American Gothic Press. 
With the rise in VR development, we'll also be accepting VR films.
This February 16-18, 2018 in downtown Santa Rosa hosted by the Santa Rosa Entertainment Group. Come take a weekend with us to relive classic stories and discover new ones.
