2021 brings a new chapter to one of the oldest and most respected film festivals.

For over a decade we have worked to put independent horror films in front of as many fans as possible. Like all children we have grown and experience growth pains as a result. Never deviating from the initial mission of giving the fans the best and truest in independent cinema.

Our scope of films has reached the slasher to the thriller from supernatural to the sublime. Cult to pop culture we challenge the discriminating film lover with our selection every year. Held in conjunction with our Fright Night Horror Weekend every year, we hope to reach more people for the cause of Indie Horror and Indie Filmmaking in 2021.

Prizes will be awarded by trophy this year.
The Winner will have the choice to get an award shipped to them after the event.
There will be a nominal shipping fee for the award.

Thanks and good luck!
