The Killer Valley Horror Film Festival was founded in 2007 by filmmaker Randy Granstrom. For 8 years it's been showcasing horror & sci-fi films from Northwest filmmakers.
It's a one night event featuring a collection of shorts and one pre-selected feature, usually to a 21+ crowd, with drinks available, live entertainment, and an awards ceremony immediately after the last film. Last year we opened it up to vendors and had a special guest, Adrienne King star of the original Friday the 13th.
This year we're opening it up beyond our usual small group of Northwest filmmakers to accepting films from all over the world. With a short deadline and our first year on FilmFreeway, we're offering FREE entries for horror and sci-fi themed short films. With limited slots available, we're looking for short, shorts, ideally 5 -10 minutes, 15 at most.
The films must have a serious horror or sci-fi vibe to them, if not, no matter how good it is, we won't show it!

Rules & Terms
We're pretty free wheeling at Killer Valley Horror Film Fest, we're just looking to have one awesome night of horror themed entertainment and to have some drinks with cool folks that enjoy scary flicks. We're mostly looking for audience pleasing films. Films that make people gasp, or laugh, or even better both! If you live in the area or want to make the trek to the festival, let us know, and we're that much more likely to admit your film into our fest. Is that fair, probably not. But we want filmmakers to be able to see their film with an audience. We're all filmmakers ourselves, and this fest started as a way to get our goofy, gory films in front of people. As we continue to open it up to more filmmakers, we want the opportunity to meet you and for you to meet fans of horror directly. Of course if we think your film kicks ass and you can't make it, we'd still love to show it. Thanks!
