Since having a successful inaugural year and second edition, The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival will be growing once again in 2018. The festival has established as a premier East Coast genre festival as because of this success the festival will now run for eight days, from October 11-18, 2018. By adding four more days to the schedule the festival will have the ability to screen more of the best independent genre film from around the world!
If you have a film you want to present to the world this is a great opportunity to do so. Submissions for The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival 2018 are now open on FilmFreeway and Withoutabox for shorts and features in the horror genre–and beyond! The first submission deadline is January 20th and the final deadline is August 13, 2018.

Both of these specials offer pre-selection before individual tickets go on sale to the public and include access to our annual pre-fest kick-off event!
The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival is extremely excited to be partnering with Nitehawk Cinema in 2018, which will become one of their primary screening venues, including Opening and Closing Night. The festival will maintain its tradition of extending our reach to old and new venues across Brooklyn, bringing together the dynamic cinephile culture that sets the borough apart. The festival will feature the bulk of its films during the weekends while the weekday schedule will be a bit lighter.
For this third edition of the festival, The Brooklyn Horror Festival is thrilled to announce that the annual Head Trip shorts program, which has spotlighted films that pushed the boundaries and expectations of the horror genre, will be expanding to its own sidebar and will include features as well. The Head Trip program will be accepting horror films that play with all genres, from sci-fi to fantasy and documentary to (weird) drama!
