5th Annual Kapow Intergalactic Film Festival

January 24, 2020

KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival experienced an amazing collective of filmmakers/screenwriters/podcasters, sharing unique projects during our fourth orbit in 2019, so we just had to come back for more magic in 2021! KaPow IFF bridges the most creative, and yet to be discovered, imaginations from all over the Multi-verses. But this “Intergalactic” festival isn’t just for science fiction. Intergalactic is the scale on which we showcase your craftwork! We value the KaPow IFF Community and the satisfying vibes we co-evolve together, where your Futureself connects with their current collaborators. Stay tuned to this page as it updates with participating sponsors, awards, vendors, and more!

We accept all long/short form projects from the following categories:

  • Animation
