From the creators of the Killer Valley Horror Film Festival, which was founded in 2007 by filmmaker Randy Granstrom. For 16 years we've been showcasing the best in indie horror and sci-fi. In 2018 we decided to branch out and start a Comedy Festival as well!

The Killer Valley Horror Film Festival was founded in 2007 by filmmaker Randy Granstrom. For 16 years we've been showcasing the best in indie horror and sci-fi.

KVCFF is a one-night event featuring a collection of comedy shorts from around the world playing to an 18+ crowd. With COVID shutting down our in-person fest for two years, we moved online, and in 2022 had our first in-person and online fest. If accepted your film will play both.

With limited time slots available, we're looking for shorter shorts, ideally 5 -10 minutes, 15 at the most. The films must be funny, if not, no matter how good it is, we won't show it!

If you're an alumnus of either our Comedy or Horror fest, a Jefferson State filmmaker, or shot your film in or around Southern Oregon/Northern California, send us a message and we can get you a free entry.

No money, but you get a lifetime of free entries into either of our festivals and featured in our awards video.

We're pretty free-wheeling at Killer Valley, we're just looking to have an awesome night of comedy-themed entertainment and to have some drinks with cool folks that enjoy funny flicks. We're mostly looking for audience-pleasing films. Films that make people laugh or gasp, or even better both!

If you live in the area or want to make the trek to the festival, let us know, and we're that much more likely to admit your film into our fest. Is that fair, maybe not? But we want filmmakers to be able to see their films with an audience. We're all filmmakers ourselves, and this fest started as a way to get our goofy, gory films in front of people. As we continue to open it up to more filmmakers, we want the opportunity to meet you and for you to meet fans of horror directly. Of course, if we think your film kicks ass and you can't make it, we'd still love to show it. Thanks!

We're shifting our festival this year from December to April, so our entries for our "2024-25" fest will actually be open all year.
