* After the huge success of our October 2019 film festival + Basket Case reunion, we are adding a June event to 2020.

We will have guests Joe Bob Briggs and Darcy The Mailgirl from The Last Drive-In on Shudder!

We are looking for one or two feature horror films to screen at Circle Drive-In Theatre on Saturday June 13th 2020.

We will STILL be taking short film submissions for our 6th annual short film festival in October in the future. But for now, this is submissions for our June event. *

The 5th Annual NEPA HORROR FILM FESTIVAL "13 SHORT FILMS" Film Festival will be at CIRCLE DRIVE-IN THEATRE in Dickson City Pennsylvania Sunday October 13th! We will have vendor tables and celebrity guest meet & greets and the films will begin at dusk.

Guest Announcements: Felissa Rose (Angela from Sleepaway Camp), Frank Henenlotter (director of Basket Case, Brain Damage, Frankenhooker), Kevin Van Hentenryck (Duane Bradley from Basket Case) and more T.B.A.

Last year was our biggest event to date! Hundreds of people came and packed the drive-in! Have your horror film screen on the BIGGEST drive-in screen in PA!

In 2017 we SOLD OUT the Iron Horse Movie Bistro in downtown Scranton PA!

Check out the video from 2016 when horror icon JOE BOB BRIGGS hosted our film festival!

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend this festival, but from what I've seen and heard through their various social media outlets it was one for the books. I feel honoured to have our work shown among such high quality productions. Thank you Nepa!

  • It really looks like an awesome event! Really happy that Tlaloc Sacrificium screened at the drive-in. It was a shame not being there. Hopefully next time! :)

    I unfortunately wasn't able to attend the festival in person, but I was honored to have my film selected and screened, and I'm humbled to know the festival organizers liked my film enough to include it. Definitely will be submitting future work!
