2013's Reviews

"What a great weekend of networking and screenings and sharing our love of filmmaking! We came away from the Hot Springs Horror Film Festival feeling like we suddenly had a much larger family. Can't wait to get back!!"

"We had such a great time at last year's event, and I'm thrilled to co-host the 2014 Hot Springs Horror Film Festival with Tamara! I can't wait to share our excitement for, and love of, the genre with each and every guest!"

- Renae Geerlings –
Mane Entertainment

"The Hot Springs Horror International Film Festival is a one of a kind festival that presents amazing opportunities for filmmakers at all levels, and this goes to the credit of the festival's organizers Bill and Tamara. I attended the film festival last year with my production company, Fuzz on the Lens, and we couldn't have been happier with it! The doors that this festival has opened for us are constantly revolving and have been nothing short of exceptional. The connections we have made are ones that will last a lifetime! This festival is all about the filmmakers, in helping them get into and become more exposed to the business. I, and the rest of Fuzz on the Lens Productions, highly recommend this festival to any and all filmmakers. You get to meet people in the industry and they are willing to lend a hand and help you out, and it's genuine, a REAL family atmosphere. We sure as heck will be back! "

I can't say enough about the fantastic hosts. the incomparable Tamara Glynn and the always gracious and organized Bill Volland. I cannot wait for October to see everyone again.”

“Hot Springs International Horror Film Festival (HSHFF) is a celebration of genre cinema by filmmakers for filmmakers. Located in one of Arkansas' most treasured historic regions, HSHFF places special emphasis on education, in addition to showcasing quality independent motion pictures.”

Justin Beahm
Fangoria Magazine
Filmmaker / Producer

“Hot Springs Horror was one of the festival highlights for “An American Terror”. Although we screened at many festivals, very few reached out to us in the personal way that HSHFF did. It was a refreshing dose of humanity in year of often impersonal interactions. They had a great line up in a fantastic environment.”
“An American Terror has amassed 13 awards from 9 different festivals, plus another dozen nominations. Although we are still fielding distribution offers, the film’s success has opened numerous doors for future productions. The future looks very bright for our team.”

Thanks for everything!
