Event Description

Short films you can adapt into graphic novels.

The Graphation Film Festival is here to encourage filmmakers to make movies that are part of a broader world.

That's not all!

Graphation is more than a film festival, it is a verb! It is the very action of making a film, having it exhibited for peers and pulp legends and then transformed into a graphic novel or comic book.

We will help pair gifted filmmakers with talented artists. Or, maybe you want to assemble the visual narration through a graphic collage, onto a mobile device? The possibilities are not endless, but darn close to it!



1. to adapt a cinematic work to pulp fiction or literary forms associated with graphic novels
2. to expand digital creative works into literary forms and then onto electronic mobile platforms.


2010; born from the minds of two adventures with a love for creative means of storytelling. Combining the form and concept of graphic and adaptation
