PEEPHOLE filmfest is aimed to showcase and recognize the talent of all the artists that make us think and feel different, artists that nourish our imagination with the allure of their films.

Freaky, hot, exciting, seductive, frightening, accelerating, nude, strange, raw, unique. We want films that characterizes by any of these adjectives.

The festival is focused on awarding artists and showcases both films and screenplays in the following categories:

· EROTIC
· HORROR
· SUSPENSE
· EXPERIMENTAL

The PEEPHOLE filmfest VOL.5 will be held in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. We will exhibit selected films at Cineforo UDG theater, one of the most iconic theaters in town with 450 seats, and will have the "Day of the death" parade passing right in front of the venue.

The PEEPHOLE filmfest will award the best scripts and the best films in each category with our beautiful handmade peephole cubes.

  • I absolutely loved my experience with the PEEPHOLE Film Fest!!!!! They have created something special that is a unicorn for us filmmakers working outside of the norm. Their dedication to programing outsider genres like the weird and the erotic is so refreshing to see, and I can't recommend them enough. I unfortunately was not able to attend, but their communication was fantastic. They were genuinely excited to screen our movie and provided great feedback on how it went. They also provided us Spanish Subtitles at a reasonable price they we are so excited to have. And that trophy, come one!! So beautiful!! Five stars all the way!!!

  • I love this festival, I love the communication. My short horror script, Come Closer, was runner-up as a non-produced script, I only wish I was in a position to attend the festival in person.

    This is a fantastic festival with a great selection of interesting films and experiences. Jerzain, Rolando and Volga are the best hosts and organizers a filmmaker can have. This is a special festival and a real opportunity to meet amazing filmmakers and immerse into the wealth of culture of the booming Guadalajara.

    The passion that Jerzain and the Peephole team have for filmmaking, and specifically for independent and experimental films, shines through in every aspect of this festival. The communication, curation of films, and their desire to connect filmmakers across the world all make this a film festival which you should absolutely attend if you have the chance.
