    Sin City Horror Fest was a fantastic film festival to be apart of! Hope to be able to submit & screen at this festival every year going forward. The organizers behind the festival are on it; very accommodating, helpful, and responsive. The horror content is great and we were able to enjoy every day at the festival. Most if, not all screening's were sold out and our film's reception was so great, sold out to the point of some people standing to watch our block. Networking opportunities and great spotlight on filmmakers at Q&A. Lucky enough to say my team won a few awards; and they were the best trophies I have ever gotten from a film festival so far. Highly recommend submitting!

    I had the privilege of showing my film How to be a Good Housewife there and could not have been happier. They are very accommodating, film-loving people who really care about movies and filmmakers! Will be attending again for sure.

  • My newborn was the only thing that could keep me from attending Sin City Horror Fest '19. Horror Movies + Sin City. What more could you want? This crew of horror lovers were super-friendly and helpful, even sending me a list of hotels to stay at. The line up looked great too. Although I wasn't able to attend a filmmaker friend who also was screening at SCHH told me it was a great time. Can't wait to attend in the future.
