RevengeFest is a film festival specializing in genre movies by minority filmmakers.

Established in 2020 by seasoned filmmaker Michael Viers and film critic Josephine Maria Yanasak-Leszczynski, RevengeFest began as a shorts film festival. The two have larger plans for it as a traditional festival with a focus on Science Fiction, Horror, Romantic Comedy, Noir, and other genres of movies. RevengeFest exists primarily to champion films made be BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, NonBinary, and Female creators.
