Festival designed to expose and promote films and screenplays that work outside the system and break the boundaries in the horror genre. To bring a voice to the talented independent filmmakers & writers within the horror genre.

Submit your HORROR films and screenplays today to the festival.

Our mission is to promote screenplays, films and videos that dissent radically in form, technique, or content, and challenge and transcend commercial and audience expectations using the audience FEEDBACK festival format that the flagship festivals uses.

Film festival occurs with a private audience at least 6 times a year in Montreal and Los Angeles. Each accepted film received 2 festival screenings. Cinema screening where they will receive their audience feedback video. And the virtual screening (4-6 weeks after) that is an industry showcase of the best HORROR films from around the world today.

Screenplay Festivals occur once a month. We perform a transcript script of the winners in a studio using professional Canadian actors and post them online for the entire world to see. (Great proof of concept video to use to promote your script.)

NOTE: Accepted works also get the opportunity to do two interviews: A blog interview and an ITunes Film Festival podcast interview.

All submissions receive full feedback from the industry (even short films).

Accepted short films get their movie showcased at the 6 times a year at the feedback film festival.

Winning screenplays get their screenplay performed at the festival and turned into a promotional video.

NEW Showcase: Submit your FEATURE FILM and receive an audience feedback promotional/testimonial video of your film. Great video to use to get into more festivals and/or promote your film. All submissions receive feedback on their film no matter what. If your film is not formally submitted to the festival, you can request the committee's notes on your film.

    Horror Underground was great! Absolutely loved the audience feedback video and so glad that "the bef" won the award for Best Performances!

    Our film was voted BEST STORY at the festival, so I cannot be happier. I was even sent an audience feedback video of their positive reaction to the film. The festival also asked me to do an interview and a podcast interview on their popular ITunes radio show. I highly recommend this festival every beginning filmmaker.
