Welcome to HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2018 – the Awards festival that both screens films in competition & helps you network, promote and sell your film, and gets your film in the TV series HHF PRESENTS.

Over the years there has been an explosion of Indie Horror film festivals.  And while that’s always great news, after the awards have been handed out, many film-makers are left wondering what to do next.  Too often many acclaimed, award winning features and shorts remain unsold and undistributed.  The industry has changed dramatically over the last few years and HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2018 reflects that change.

The big question is how do you actually make any money from all your hard work?   Well at HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2018 we’re gathering some of the best and knowledgeable names in the indie horror industry to help answer your questions.  We’ll also have representatives from many of the current independent distribution companies at hand plus sales reps and PR companies with valuable tips on how to market your work.  Whether you’ve made a short or feature, we have panels that can help with:

  • financing
  • writing
  • casting
  • PR
  • festivals
  • selling
  • distributing

Films in competition will be screened throughout the festival.  All film-makers will get to:

  • walk the red carpet
  • pose for press photos in front of the festival step & repeat
  • & Winners receive Awards and prizes (TBA)

Festival winners will also be invited to participate in some of the informative panels – imparting their unique insight into how they got their films financed, made, sold and distributed.

And most importantly we’re now working with one of AMAZON VIDEO’s longest running aggregator/distributors and give our winning entries the opportunity to be part of Season Two of our acclaimed TV series HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST PRESENTS. So hopefully our winners will make some money too.

“Awards are fun, but getting a check in the post is even funner.”

Ultimately this is a great opportunity to screen, promote and sell your work – all in one place.  We can’t promise you’ll make a sale but we hope you will be far closer to your goal than ever before.  Or as we like to say…

SCREEN, BE SEEN & MARKET YOUR DREAM.

At the HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2018.
