New Mexico Fright Fest is not only comprised of experts who lead the New Mexico film industry in their fields but also of everyday people who are avid horror film fans and spend hours watching and appreciating the days of hard work put in by horror film crews on every single film. The goal of our organization is to create a horror film festival which caters to the demands of horror film fans and allows them to create pleasant memories during their time with us that will keep them coming back year after year.


New Mexico Fright Fest will showcase horror films from around the globe. New Mexico has seen it's fair share of film festivals, Film competitions, film and TV productions, and film incentives. New Mexico has been home to and helped produce Oscar winning films, not to mention our trained crews which serve A-list and independent film makers with results which are not to be questioned. This October, join us as we kick off the inaugural year of Fright Fest, New Mexico's first chance to embrace, host, promote and award the best from around the world in the genre most befitting the “spirit” of the season.
