HAUS Awards is a streaming genre awards show brought to you by HAUS Film Festival; featuring Horror, Action, Underground, and Sci-Fi/Fantasy. We want truly independent, creative works of passion that are often overlooked.

We seek things savage, terrifying, magical, brutal, and transgressive. We desire innovative works of obsession; DIY nightmares and adventures.

Official Selections will be live-streamed as a distance-safe telepresence party.

HAUS Awards is festive. We feature DJ's music, and dancers, all from the safety of your home. Receive honors, mingle, and participate in Q&A about your film for our captive audience.

Winning films will be designated as "Official Selection", regardless of category.

    This Festival was the cat's meow (in the cattest and meowest possible way). We've been honored to have our movie screened in this fun Festival, we've been welcomed, cherished, and entertained through and through — despite the fact that, due to pandemic (you might have heard of it), we were all remotely connected. It was a blast, it flew by, Otis and his gang are spectacular... We're tempted to make another movie just hoping to participate again, but then we realize this may sound like a threat, so... Never mind (haha). But in all seriousness, a fantastic Festival!!
