The 2021 festival has ended. Submissions for 2022 will open on Nov. 1st!
SPYFLIX is the only film & tv festival dedicated to secrets. Secrets make perfect stories: each contains a who, what, how & why. Maybe that's why secrets power franchises from James Bond and Batman to Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Star Wars and dozens more - plus factual stories across news and current affairs, history and politics.
The 2021 festival has concluded. It was our honor to present 22 noteworthy finalists, 5 extraordinary winners (including a 2021 Oscar nominee), and 20 unique Spotlight Series selections. We congratulate them all, and we look forward to the next SPYFLIX Festival in 2023!
SPYFLIX is presented by SPYSCAPE - the home of secrets.
SPYSCAPE Podcast Network
Our podcasts — including the hit shows True Spies , For Your Ears Only , and The Great James Bond Car Robbery — feature Hollywood stars and leading experts sharing stories and secrets of espionage, true crime, movies, and music.
