MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Final Girls Berlin Film Festival showcases horror cinema that’s directed, written, or produced by women.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Final Girls Berlin Film Festival showcases horror cinema that’s directed, written, or produced by women*. After our thrilling and chilling first two editions in February and June 2017, we are holding the third installment of FGBFF from February 1-3 at Berlin's Il Kino. We are looking for horror films (as well as films with horror elements or films that pay homage to horror), of all lengths. We are also extra excited if female filmmakers wish to visit the festival in order to participate in panels, or give talks or workshops on a particular aspect of horror cinema. We are committed to creating space for female voices and visions, whether monstrous, heroic, or some messy combination of the two, in the horror genre.
