Welcome to the Horror Movie Freaks Film Festival. Thank you so much for making our 2nd year another HUGE success! And we are looking forward to an even better 3rd year. As always we hope to have several filmmakers in attendance, so a great chance to meet the folks behind the camera, as well as for networking among other people in the industry. This year we do plan to have a few vendors to browse during the breaks. We can't wait to see what the indie world has to offer for the next HMF Film Fest! So please come out and join us!!!

Our goal with hosting this festival is to help get more focus on the indie and short film side of Horror. There is so much original, and amazing content coming from the indie world that its truly mind blowing.

The films will be shown to a live audience, and after that, the awards ceremony will be streaming live to our followers.

Good luck to all the filmmakers! We hope to see you all at the 2020 HMF Film Festival!!!!
