You are invited to the 17th Annual Atlanta Horror Film Festival!
The 2023 Atlanta Horror Film Festival will be held at RoleCall Theater from October 12 -15.
AHFF is the top horror film festival in Atlanta. We are dedicated to showcasing films from the world's most talented filmmakers. Our program is packed with award-winning films from every corner of the earth.
In our 17 seasons, we have consistently programmed films that stick with you long after the festival is over, and films you won't see anywhere else. AHFF is a must for established and up-and-coming filmmakers who have created short and feature films that audiences will not and can not forget.
Our selection committee programs every type of film in the horror genre: from sci-fi to gore, and everything in between. 2023 will be a celebration of 17 great years, and a huge party is already being planned!
Atlanta Horror Film Festival is held during the Atlanta Film Series, a showcase of independent film designed to spotlight every genre of cinema imaginable.
