Monster Fest 2024 / 07 February 2024

Melbourne Dates & Submissions Open For MONSTER FEST 2024

Melbourne, clear your calendar as MONSTER FEST returns to Cinema Nova from Friday 4 to Saturday 12 October for our 2024 edition.

Have you got a Short or Feature Film you wish to submit for consideration in this year’s festival?

Good News! Submissions are Now Open.

Founded in 2011, Monster Fest is a mix of premieres, international festival favourites, challenging new discoveries, and curated repertory sidebars alongside filmmaker Q&As, panels and a special emphasis on supporting emerging Australian genre talent through the festival and beyond.

From its humble beginnings in Victoria back in 2011 at Cinema Nova to the present day with nationwide festivals in partnership with Australia’s largest exhibition chain Event Cinemas, Monster Fest has grown to become the country’s premier genre film festival.

More than a film festival though, Monster Fest is about engagement and a shared experience, uniting its audience as a community.

Monster Fest acknowledges the Traditional Owners of this country, pays tribute to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and gives respect to Elders past and present.
