Category Rules

To be eligible to screen, your film does not have to be a premiere.

Short films must be 01-59 minutes (including credits) and feature films must be 60–180 minutes (including credits). All films can be original or adapted works. All production formats will be considered for films, and your film must be in English, or subtitled and/or dubbed in English. Terror Film Festival DOES consider films that are Works-In-Progress.

Rest assured that TFF will not change your film submission category. TFF leaves your film submission in the category you’ve chosen (example: if you submit your film as a horror film, rest assured that it will be considered as a horror film).

Please clearly label ALL materials submitted with at least the film title. TFF does not return submitted materials, so please do not send us your master copies. All Terror Film Festival decisions are final.

Thank You and Good Luck from Terror Film Festival.
