About us

Screamfest is America’s largest and longest running horror film festival

Specializing in horror, thrillers and sci-fi movies from all around the world. The festival is dedicated to supporting intriguing films, discovering creative storytellers and seeking original stories from around the world. We work with other festivals, film archives, cinemas and filmmakers to spotlight lesser-known films in an ongoing effort to grow recognition and appreciation of the horror genre. We are dedicated to giving our audience a chance to find new favorite films and future genre classics.


Screamfest accepts feature & short films from around the world. The 2022 call for entries for film is OPEN.
