The ROCKY MOUNTAIN NIGHTMARES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (RMNIFF) was created to showcase and celebrate the latest and greatest contributions of independent Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Thriller films from around the world!
We help filmmakers and screenwriters get the exposure and recognition they deserve!

RMNIFF is focused on bridging the gaps between filmmakers, fans, and financing. Since our film festival is part of our horror convention, we offer filmmakers the unique chance to hang with the horror icons, party with the fans, and network with distribution representatives and financiers.

We accept a wide variety of films and you may enter your film in multiple categories. We are expanding the number screenings this year to accommodate more films.

Our awards will be for:

* Best Actor/Best Actress
* Best Cinematography
