We believe science fiction and fantasy-themed films are the pinnacle of imaginative storytelling truly requiring innovation. Large-budget studio films have the advantage in visual effects and sets but the independent filmmaker can tell an even more inventive and entertaining story with limited resources. We want to see and showcase these creations and be a vehicle by which these films can reach a wider audience.
The Miami International Science Fiction Film Festival is an experience. Not only for the attendee but the filmmaker too. We have meticulously selected films that represent the very essence of science fiction. As a result of our famous founders, we receive a considerable amount of films and screenplays from dozens of countries each year.

We feature numerous exciting themes from Science Fiction to Fantasy to Animation to Horror, Student films plus locally made gems from Florida. This festival features the first of its kind the “MicroDoc” a short documentary of informative science content. This exciting collection of films will be encapsulated with the local SciFi and Cosplay scene to bring the elements to life.
Every season MiSciFi brings talent and award-winning films to the community through its outreach programs and annual event (also described as a congress).
