The 2021 festival has ended. Submissions for 2022 will open on Nov. 1st!
Secrets, spies and superheroes have magical powers: from the biggest fiction franchises (007, Harry Potter, Batman, Star Wars and Sherlock Holmes) to the best factual stories in news and current affairs, history and politics.
Our inaugural SPYFLIX Festival has concluded, but we'll be back soon!
We received entries from all over the world and we were honored to select 22 finalists and 5 extraordinary winners (including a 2021 Oscar nominee) plus 20 spotlight series selections.
SPYSCAPE is an innovative brand at the forefront of experiential entertainment and culture. We believe ordinary people can do extraordinary things. We leverage the magical appeal of secrets, spies and superheroes to engage audiences through storytelling and experiences, and inspire them to discover their superpowers.
SPYSCAPE HQ is our iconic 60,000 sq ft flagship, designed by Sir David Adjaye, which has quickly become the #1 rated experiential museum in New York City.
SPYSCAPE Studios publishes premium content, including podcasts such as True Spies hosted by OSCAR® nominee Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, Pieces of a Woman) and two-time Laurence Olivier Awards winner Hayley Atwell (Captain America, Mission: Impossible); The Spying Game hosted by three-time BAFTA winner Rory Bremner; The Great James Bond Car Robbery hosted by Elizabeth Hurley (Austin Powers, The Royals); and the forthcoming SPYSCAPE Files hosted by Broadway and TV superstar Emmy Raver-Lampman (Hair, Hamilton, The Umbrella Academy).
SPYFLIX is thrilled to showcase new and underrepresented storytelling talent.
Please check back for details on our exciting next chapter.
