Screamfest Horror Film Festival
Screamfest Horror Film Festival is the largest and longest running horror film festival in the United States. This year it will begin on October 10 and run through October 19th. It is a 10-day event full of horror films in a festival experience. This is the perfect time for this kind of event because we are in the Halloween season. Film producers Rachel Belofsky and Ross Martin formed Screamfest in August 2001 to give filmmakers and writers in the horror genre a spotlight to showcase their work. Film entries are accepted in many categories like Directing, Cinematography, Editing, Special Effects, and many more. This event premieres new work from American and international independent horror filmmakers.
One interesting fact from this event is that the film Paranormal Activity was discovered and premiered at this festival in 2007. This is a fun event especially if you are a fan of horror or sci-fi films. Within the event, they have added special screenings of classic horror films to the mix. So, not only will you see freshly produced content but also classical Hollywood horror films that gave this genre a voice.
The 17th annual Screamfest Horror Film Festival will be held at TCL Chinese 6 Theatres 6801 Hollywood Blvd. Hollywood, CA 90028
