The HEX Film Festival is an exciting opportunity to screen your Halloween, entertainment, sci-fi, or horror themed film. We have expanded our festival and now screen in two cities. During mid-October 2023 we will be in Burnaby at the Metroplex theatre. We are showing our films in conjunction with Burnaby's Halloween event. This is our main screening event, where we will host movie makers and showcase their movies on full size theatre screens. Burnaby may be offering some reimbursement for travel which I can outline closer to the actual event. Burnaby is a beautiful city located next door to Hollywood north in Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver Island and Whistler are short drives from the city
We will also have a live screening festival in Calgary Oct 6-31, 2023. Calgary is located just an hour from picturesque Banff, Canada, HEX After Dark is the largest Halloween Film Festival in Western Canada. The festival is held during Calgary's Screamfest festival (www.screamfest.ca) which features haunted experiences, live theatre, Halloween retail spaces, and of course our screening room. Last year we had 22,000 people attend the event.
The festival features a banquet of today's new independent films.. We would like to hos industry guests including distribution companies and halloween / horror related media contacts, and of course - our film makers. Please see our reviews!!
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.
