The Boston Horror Comedy Film Festival is an opportunity for filmmakers from both the horror world and the comedy world to screen, network, grow and experience the greatness that is these golden genres. The line between horror and comedy is an interesting one, because both rely so similarly on timing and style. We made this festival to celebrate both of these under-appreciated genres and the incredible filmmakers that specialize in either.

Our festival is designed and has continued to develop with the goal of providing as much value as possible for the incredible filmmakers and film enthusiasts that attend. We screen beautiful horror work and comedy work, we have masterclasses, panels, lessons, resources, tools, etc. We have networking opportunities to connect likeminded film and industry personnel. And of course, we have awards!

Whether a finalist or not, all officially selected filmmakers will be invited to join us at the Boston Horror Comedy Film Festival for networking, learning and for our official premiere and awards ceremony.
