MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The 13th Annual Atlanta Horror Film Festival will be held September 12 - 15, 2019 at the Synchronicity Theatre.
Atlanta Horror Film Festival is the top horror film festival in Atlanta. We are dedicated to showcasing films from the world's most talented filmmakers. Our program is packed with award-winning films from every corner of the earth.
In our 13 seasons, we have consistently programmed films that stick with you long after the festival is over, and films you won't see anywhere else.
Atlanta Horror Film Festival is a must for established and up-and-coming filmmakers who have created short and feature films that audiences can not forget.
Our selection committee programs every kind of film in the horror genre: from sci-fi to gore, and everything in between.
The 2019 festival will be a celebration of 13 great years, and a huge party is already being planned!
