Membership and / or Donation information
The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films was founded in 1972 to honor, recognize and promote genre films. We annually present the prestigious Saturn Awards.
In recent years, we have added television and home entertainment categories to the media mix. We have also widened the scope of our awards by celebrating achievement in additional genres including action, adventure, and thrillers as well as international cinema. We recognize the films and programming the typical genre fan embraces and supports with great insight and passion.
