MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The NOLA Horror Film Fest is a festival created by horror filmmakers for horror fans. It’s no small wonder - and no great surprise - that so many of today’s top directors got their start in “low budget horror”. With determination and imagination, these artists have created some truly memorable work that has encouraged and inspired a new generation of filmmakers. Our goal is the promotion of horror/sci-fi filmmaking in Louisiana, as well as nationally and internationally. The NOHFF is committed to celebrating the craft and advancing the art form of genre films.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The NOLA Horror Film Fest takes place in one of the most famous - and most haunted - cities in the world. From the Thursday night festivities (Filmmaker Meet & Greet, Opening Night Pub Crawl), through three days of the best horror & sci-fi programs (Features & Shorts Screenings, Screenplay Readings, Filmmaker Q&A’s, Panel Discussions, Special Guests), to the Sunday night events (Awards Ceremony), the NOHFF is going to be a weekend to remember. We encourage filmmakers, casts & crews, friends & family, and horror fans alike to experience New Orleans (from the food to the music to the history).
