Horror Films in Hotlanta, is a horror film festival in Atlanta, Georgia. This annual event showcases horror films from around the world. Atlanta has a great film scene in general, but also a dedicated horror film community that is eager to see new films. All flavors of horror are accepted including creatures, suspense, vampires, zombies, psycho killers, dark comedy, animation and other horrific situations that will make our audience jump. We've recruited 12 judges in the Atlanta area that are ready to watch every minute of every film submitted.

  • I didn't have an opportunity to the attend HFH event. Caroline and her team have a love of film and screenwriting as evidenced in her communications with me. I wish them continued success as they give filmmakers an excellent opportunity to showcase their hard work. Thanks Caroline for make my screenplay "Theodore" part of the festival.
