The 2021 Dickens Horror Film Festival -- Fear and Film on the Front Range. We bring you our sixth annual contemporary and classic horror film festival for one day and night in October 2021.

Screenings all day and night at the historic and haunted Dickens Opera House. Along with films there will be speakers and workshops through-out the day illustrating the behind the scene process's such as costume and make up design that effectively suspends our disbelief. This festival will scare the Dickens out of you!

    I wasn't able to attend the festival but would have if I didn't have a traveling conflict. I was pleased to have A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Theatre accepted at this year's fest, especially considering where the screenings would be taking place.
