** Film Festival Update **
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and sponsors unable to attend we will be having the festival ONLINE this year. The amazing iHorror Awards will be shipped to the winners. More details on this new format will be relayed to everyone soon.

We will be back bigger and IN PERSON next year!


We are committed to sharing great horror creative works no matter what's going on in the world around us. Our event isn't until the first week of October, so we still have time to wait and see what the world will look like this Fall.

If you find yourself bored indoors - write a screenplay or try your hand at horror photography, then enter it into the 2020 iHorror Festival!

The show will go on - talent will be highlighted on our iHorror platforms - whether it be digital or in person at our event in Ybor City.

Of course, we're all playing it by ear, however, when you enter know for sure the iHorror Film Festival will absolutely happen in all its spectacular, horrific gory glory.
The location or way we transmit the information may change, but our support for this community never will!!

An immersive horror film festival experience!

Take home one of the highest awards in horror: The iHorror Award

iHorror Film Fest celebrates the genre of horror and the filmmakers behind it in a way unlike any other.

At iHorror, we are fans of the genre just like you, and we want to celebrate and support filmmakers who pour their heart and soul into the craft. Filmmakers of selected films will share in the rewards of the distribution viewership and we will do everything in our power to promote your film and get as many eyes on it as horrorly possible!

Any award-winning filmmakers will receive 2 tickets to the award ceremony and screenings in the fall! Location and exact dates TBD.

This film festival is not just a celebration of everything horror, but it's also a great networking event with people that have excelled in the horror entertainment industry.

Join us on this cinematic journey and submit your film today.
Thank you for creating art and we will see you at the cinema!

iHorror Award
We will host a live awards show and screening for filmmakers selected for the iHorror Award. Random category submissions & winners will be featured on iHorror.com to help maximize exposure to you and your work.

The iHorror Film Festival is not like any other horror festival you've been to before. We immerse the festival experience in horror, from the event location to the special guests in attendance speaking one-on-one with festival attendees.

Take a look at last year's event with special guests Dan Myrick (The Blair Witch Project) and Jeffrey Reddick (creator of the Final Destination franchise.) **URL Posting Soon**

All entrants must own the full rights to any assets used in the film. If selected for streaming and/or anthology film inclusion, separate terms will apply and will be communicated and agreed upon with the filmmaker(s) before your film is released.

    2020 threw a huge wrench in all festival planning, but ihorror Film Fest still put on an amazing digital version of their event. Even though we couldn't all meet face to face, the iHorror team created a wonderful platform for filmmakers to gather.
