NOTE: This festival is still taking place each week despite the COVID-19 virus. All festival dates have been relegated to private screenings with the same Audience FEEDBACK videos made for the short films, and recorded script readings performed by professional actors for the screenplays.

Festival designed to expose and promote films and screenplays that work outside the system and break the boundaries.. To bring a voice to the talented independent filmmakers living in a world saturated with commercial entertainment. 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 4 times a year in Toronto and Los Angeles.

Screenplay Festivals occur once a month. We perform the winners in a studio using professional Canadian actors and post them online for the entire world to see.

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

Accepted short films get their movie showcased at the 4 times a year at the feedback film festival.

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

Overall Rating
  • Fantastic festival! Great communication throughout the entire process. We're thrilled that RETURN TO SENDER is included in the showcases as an Official Selection and just found out we received Best Direction for WHAT IF! Thank you to the entire team at HORROR Underground for taking the time to create an Audience Feedback video for my film! Overall, this was an amazing experience!!

    Highly recommend this festival! Great communication throughout. They really have a unique festival with the winning scripts being performed by professional actors. The video will be invaluable as a promotional tool. This is definitely one you should enter.

    The festival provided a video with audience feedback, something no other festival has provided. Great insight and communication throughout!

  • We haven't made it to the festival itself yet, but I just listened to a reading of a scene from my script with professional actors and I couldn't be happier. The festival's notes on my script were so helpful, and the follow-up interviews and opportunities I've received so far make this festival that wants to see scripts make that next big step: to get made!
    This is definitely a festival I want to make it into!
