MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The 8th Annual Atlanta Horror Film Festival will showcase the very best independent films from across the world as we celebrated the art of horror.

Since 2006, the festival has been a favorite of filmmakers and fans from Atlanta and beyond.

Our focus is to celebrate independent cinema, and we strive to feature as many great films as we can during this great weekend of screenings.

AHFF showcases horror, sci-fi, gore, thrillers, mysteries, dark comedies, expERIEmentals, drama, animations, zombie films, cult - almost every genre you can imagine!

Although we love traditional horror, we are not attempting to create the typical showcase of blood and guts. AHFF presents cutting-edge films that represent the new genre of horror - films that audiences can’t and won’t forget.

We encourage all talented filmmakers to enter their short and feature-length films today for the Atlanta Horror Film Festival.




ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

PLEASE NOTE:
Because we have judges in all parts of the world, we prefer submissions via Withoutabox's Secure Online Screeners. You'll save on shipping cost, help protect the environment, and your film will be easily shared and reviewed by more members of our selection committee. If you prefer to mail a copy of your work, please email us a link where we can view your film online (if possible.)
