The HEX Film Festival is an exciting opportunity to screen your Halloween themed film. The live screening festival is held in Calgary Oct 11-14, 2019. The festival features a banquet of today's new independent films. Located just an hour from picturesque Banff, Canada, HEX is the largest Halloween Film Festival in Western Canada. The festival is held during Calgary's Halloween & Entertainment Expo which features haunted experiences, live theatre, Halloween retail spaces, and a number of headline celebrities.
The mission of the HEX Film Festival is to promote the artistry of independent films made in the spirit of creativity, provide exposure for talented visionary filmmakers, and celebrate a collective passion for Halloween.
Held in the thriving city of Calgary, this destination event features four days of independent genre films from around the world, as well as networking opportunities and extensive media exposure.
We are looking for full length and short films that showcase all there is to love about Halloween. Films are divided into short and feature film categories.

**Only films that have a Halloween/Horror/ASci-Fi/Fantasy theme will be featured**
**We do not provide waivers - requests will be ignored**

Two weekend passes to the full Halloween & Entertainment Expo will be provided to the creators of each accepted project.
