In 2017, MAC HORROR FILM FESTIVAL reaches its fourth edition. This year, MAC will bring an amazing selection of short and feature films to the heart of the Amazon jungle.
Our festival's main goal is to bring the best of independent and underground filmmaking to the Amazon and also to promote the exchange of information and knowledge between filmmakers.
MAC 2017 will take place at the historic Gebbes Medeiros theater, located in downtown Manaus (and near the famed Amazon Theater).

Overall Rating
  • Although our film got selected for this festival and we spent money on having our film translated to Portuguese - we haven't heard anything from the organisation.

    I've made numerous attempts to contact them but I haven't got a word. The translation never got back and the website seem to be gone.

    Very disappointed!

    Great festival in a cool region of the world for English speaking filmmakers. They offer reasonably priced Portuguese subtitles and cool certificates for winners. Excellent festival with exciting programming by a friendly staff who are passionate about genre cinema. Hopefully this fest will get listed on IMDB soon so I can show off the award and festival to fans who land on our page. If you're into exploitation and horror, this is the real deal. Highly recommended.
