MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Indie Horror Film Festival is an independent film festival.
We strive to support independent film, and promote all types of dark art. We go the extra mile to get recognition beyond the festival alone for the amazingly talented people in this industry. Even films submitted to us that don't get accepted for the festival are very often reviewed and written about by one of our columnists for one of our websites or print magazine publications including Dark Arts Magazine!
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Indie Horror Film Festival is an independent film festival. We strive to support independent film, and work to get the filmmakers more notice, and to get independent films seen. The Indie Horror Film Festival started in 2005 (known then as "Indy Horror Film Festival") by Gatlin Pictures (Jason Davis - Horror Author / Festival Founder). The festival gain some size but then disappeared for a couple years. In 2010 Spook Show Entertainment (Willy Adkins - Producer) joined Davis in an effort to bring the Indy "Back from the Dead". Since the new effort, Spook Show Entertainment has continued to bring the event back annually ever since welcoming visitors and film makers from all over the world!

More Information On The Indie Horror Film Festival Awards:
*Award Winners will be announced in a ceremony at the end of the festival. Winners in attendance will be presented a certificate. Those not in attendance will be sent a digital certificate to print by email. Winners will also be posted in the news feed (front page) of IndieHorrorFest.com / SpookShowEntertainment.com within 48 hours of the close of the festival.
** Our Selection / Awards Procedure: Festival Director / Producers make official selections for the festival by vote. Official Selections are then screened/graded by 5 different judges anonymously and given an overall grade on a 5 point scale for each of the qualifying award categories (with the exception of the “Directors Choice Award”). All judges points are then added together to give it a grade. The top 5 films by grade in each category are then considered an award nominee and listed on this page. The film with the highest grade in each category is considered and announced that category’s award winner at the festival. In the event of a tie for highest grade, the festival director, festival producer and festival founder will each vote on the tied films giving the majority vote the award. In the event that one of the production staff are involved in one of the films involving a tie, a 3rd party will be selected to vote in place of the production staff member involved.
*** Special Recognition Awards are given to any film that is nominated (in top 5 by votes) in 5 or more categories. The way we see it is, even if the film didn’t score the highest in any of the categories, to be a nominee in 5 or more categories means that the film was extremely good across the board. (The Festival Directors Choice Award category don’t qualify for the Special Recognition Awards)
**** The Festival Directors Choice Award nominee’s are the Film Festival Directors top 5 choice films of the festival. The Directors Choice Award is presented at the festival to the Directors favorite film of the festival. (Any film that the festival director is personally involved in at any level is not eligible for this award.)
