The Scene Wednesday: Horror Film Festivals 2015 & Art in the Park @ Auburn

October 7/15

Morning horror fans! I’m giving you die-hard horror fans a heads up about a few horror film festivals coming your way. Also for those living in Auburn, Alabama or Columbus, Georgia area, they have something fun for everyone this weekend…..Art in the Park.


Freak Show Horror Film Festival 2015 / October 9 – 11, 2015 /

Celebrate and Support the Art of Independent Film! This international horror genre film festival is the brainchild of FEAR FILM Studios Owner Robert J. Massetti. As a veteran independent horror filmmaker, Robert wanted to make a film festival that celebrates the independent horror filmmaker by giving the artist a forum to show his or her work.

The festival is a showcase of some of the most talented, up and coming horror filmmakers in the world and tries hard to help filmmakers reach their goals with their films.  This is a festival not to be missed for fun and exposure…….


Eerie Horror Film Festival & Expo / October 16 – 18, 2015 /

The Eerie Horror Film Festival is an internationally recognized competition that takes place each year in Erie, Pa. (USA). We focus on the art of independent film making and screenwriting in the horror, science fiction and suspense genres. Films are selected from the hundreds of submissions we receive each season and are then shown on the big screen over the course of our multi-day event. Prizes are awarded to best movies and scripts. In addition to the film screenings, we also host an Expo during our event featuring celebrity guests and vendors from around the country as well as seminars and workshops.


Telluride Horror Show / October 16, 17, 18, 2015 /

The Telluride Horror Show, Colorado’s first and longest-running horror film festival, returns for its 6th edition October 16-18, 2015. Every year, the festival attracts the latest & best horror films from all over the world and attendees from all over the country for an intimate gathering of genre film fans in the world-famous mountain resort town of Telluride, Colorado. For three days and nights, experience an eclectic mix of horror, suspense, thriller, dark fantasy, sci-fi and even comedy in Telluride’s historic Sheridan Opera House and Nugget Theatre, with many of the films showing for the first time in the US. The festival features an average of 20 feature films and 30+ short films, and hosts special programs, guests, and events. If you love horror, and film, then you can’t miss this fest. Named one of the “20 Coolest Film Festivals” by Moviemaker Magazine.


Atlanta Horror Film Festival 2015 / October 28 – 30, 2015 @doogallery /

The 9th Annual Atlanta Horror Film Festival celebrates the art of horror as we showcase the very best independent horror films from across the world held October 28 – 30, 2015 @doogallery in Atlanta, Georgia.

Since 2006, the festival has been a favorite of filmmakers and fans from Atlanta and beyond. Our focus is to spotlight remarkable independent horror feature and short films from every country, and from filmmakers of every experience level. ​AHFF showcases horror, sci-fi, gore, thrillers, mysteries, dark comedies, expERIEmentals, drama, animations, zombie films, cult – almost every genre you can imagine!

Although we love traditional horror, we are not attempting to create the typical showcase of blood and guts. AHFF presents cutting-edge films that represent the new genre of horror – films that audiences can’t and won’t forget.
