Watch bite-sized indie horror films made by local filmmakers, both amateur and experienced.
This year we are extremely lucky to have two of the best venues in Vermont for our premiere: The Welden Theater in St. Albans on October 25th, and the Sunset Drive-In on October 28th. ***Please see each venues website for their up-to-date COVID policies.***
Best Film Award
Viewers and judges decide who received both the festival’s grand prize and excellence awards.
