PANIC FEST PRESENTS "TRICKS & TREATS" HALLOWEEN WEEKEND

A FUN FILLED VIRTUAL WEEKEND OF FILMS & EVENTS

Halloween may be cancelled this year but that doesn't mean the fun has to end. Join Panic Fest Co-Founders Adam Roberts, Tim KC Canton and friends for a weekend full of spooky films and virtual events that will make your spine tingle with delight and terror.

Our "Tricks & Treats" virtual Halloween Weekend will be held online October 30 - Nov 1, 2020. This will not be taking the place of Panic Fest 2021 but instead consider it an extra bonus like getting a full-sized candy bar while trick-or-treating. Stay tuned for more details surrounding Panic Fest 2021. Until then let's get spooky together!

Programming will include the following:
- Feature Films
- Short Film Showcase
- Live Events (podcasts, Q&A, etc)
