HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST is the home of the PRICE AWARD.
We offer all selected features this year the chance to have their work distributed too – through our partnership with FILM FEST DISTRIBUTION.
We continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation from a global perspective. Our priority, if available, is to create a safe environment for all attendees, following the health and safety protocols set forth by the state of California.
We want to personally thank Victoria Price for being at this year’s HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST and being there to present the PRICE AWARD to Sid Haig. We know it meant so much to Sid to receive it from Vincent’s daughter. And again we and the entire audience were enthralled by Victoria’s eloquent and entertaining (and very revealing) talk on her great father.We could have listened to her all night long, it was that good.
We’d also like to thank everyone at the VINCENT PRICE ART MUSEUM for their continued support of the festival and particularly to Sonia Mak and her husband for attending this year’s event and introducing the PRICE AWARD on behalf of the VPAM.

Learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about indie horror filmmaking but were afraid to ask. Seriously. A PANEL TO DIE FOR features a host of horror industry insiders laying bare the often hidden truths of the business. Learn how much a film can make, how to pick the most sellable subject matter and most importantly what you should never ever do. If there’s only one panel you should see before making your next movie it’s this. Come with business cards and lots of questions.
The panel includes acclaimed Writer/Director Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237), Producer Ed Polgardy (GHOSTMAKER), Distributor Vince D’Amato (DARKSIDE RELEASING), Aggregator Nadav Streett (RISING SUN MEDIA, INC), Writer/Director Rolfe Kanefsky (PARTY BUS TO HELL), Indie Director Jason Rutherford (SHHHH), Marketing Consultant Matt Chassin, Distributor Erik Lundmark (LEOMARK STUDIOS), Producer Lotti Knowles (CHASTITY BITES), and is moderated by Writer/Producer Mike Davis (PRESIDENT WOLFMAN) for 2 hours of career-changing knowledge. We kid you not.
Tickets are FREE on a first come first served basis and will be available on the door and online. But we advise reserving your ticket online (tickets will be held till only 15 minutes prior to each event).
Acclaimed actress and Horror icon DEE WALLACE (E.T, Cujo, The Howling) joins the cast & crew of a film every aspiring horror filmmaker should watch – “HORROR MOVIE: A Low Budget Nightmare” – which has its US premiere at HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST on Sunday July 29 in N. Hollywood.
Committed to helping new filmmakers learn more about the indie horror business, HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST will be screening this highly acclaimed and incredibly insightful documentary for FREE. It will be followed by a Q&A with DEE WALLACE and the Director & crew. The festival’s own A PANEL TO DIE FOR (P2D4), featuring industry insiders giving advice on how to best make and distribute your low budget masterpiece, also for free, will follow.
Directed by Gary Doust, “HORROR MOVIE: A Low Budget Nightmare” documents writer/director Craig Anderson’s troubled journey to make his feature film debut, the
horror movie “Red Christmas” – a quaint story about a murderous aborted fetus. The documentary dramatically follows Anderson’s emotional rollercoaster ride funding, directing and finally trying to sell his dream movie to an industry he knows little about. It’s indie film-school 101 captured in a engrossing (and at times gross) tale of wide-eyed dreamers, Hollywood scream queens and a vengeful fetus at Christmas.
“Basically every well-intentioned, wrong-step of filmmaking is documented in this wonderful and passionate film,” states Festival Founder/Director Miles Flanagan. “And for that reason it’s a free screening. It needs to be seen by every new, rising filmmaker at the fest.”
Acclaimed director SAM IRVIN joins us for our special fundraising evening with actress CASSANDRA PETERSON. IRVIN directed the classic “ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS” and will be part of this fundraising event (benefitting the VINCENT PRICE ART MUSEUM – VPAM). PETERSON will be receiving the prestigious PRICE AWARD from Vincent Price’s daughter VICTORIA PRICE. The evening will continue with a rare screening (digital) and Q&A for “”ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS.” The venue has a full bar (ID required), vendors, snacks, food and celebrity raffles – raising funds and awareness for the VPAM.
