Attention horror film fanatics, there’s a new celebration you’ll want to attend this October. We Got This Covered has announced the first ever Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, created by Justin Timms, serving as festival director, and his team of horror enthusiasts.
The inaugural event will take place October 14 – 16 in Brooklyn and will include screenings, Q&A’s with filmmakers, special panels that will let fans interact with horror critics, parties that will “rage on in the name of hellish, sinful fun” and so much more.
“The BHFF will be showing nothing short of the best in badass genre cinema,” says the official announcement. “The directors of the BHFF are committed to celebrating the art of horror filmmaking and you can expect a lot more than just a standard regional film festival.”
The festival will also be taking film submissions in all genres including, but not limited to, horror, sci-fi, comedy, fantasy, documentary and drama. Filmmakers can submit their projects online. The judges for the film entries will be We Got This Covered’s Matt Donato, as well as Arrow In The Head Managing Editor Eric Walkuski, Shudder Curator Sam Zimmerman, and Producer/Director Jenn Wexler.
As the date approached more news of selected films that will be screened, invitees and more will be announced.
