The Overlook Lives! Virtual Festival NIGHTSTREAM coming October!

Overlook Returns Online Oct. 8th - 11th, 2020
WELCOME TO NIGHTSTREAM

In response to the many challenges impacting the film community amid the Covid-19 pandemic, and the concerns of safety and security that presently come with physical exhibition and festivals, a collective online initiative is being launched by organizers of a number of American genre festivals for the upcoming fall season to offer a singular experience for U.S. audiences.

Together the Boston Underground Film Festival, Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, North Bend Film Festival, The Overlook Film Festival, and Popcorn Frights Film Festival are joining forces under the banner of NIGHTSTREAM to present a dynamic and accessible virtual festival, to run from Oct. 8-11. Earlybird badges are on sale now.

Proceeds from all pass sales will be shared with all artists showcased, as well as charitable causes and struggling small businesses in each of our festival’s home cities, and with each of our organizations to recoup expenses from our canceled physical events, and help sustain us through these turbulent months so that we can all return to public gatherings when it is safe to do so.

Expect a full slate of feature and short film programming along with unique live events, panels, conversations, masterclasses, and more, all tailored to each festival's unique flavor. 

Read a letter of intent from the organizers HERE

ITCHY-O PRESENTS SYPHERLOT: DRIVE IN RADIO BATH
Longtime fans may remember the throngs of fire-breathing masked crusaders, hailed by many hypnotized fest-goers as a "Satanic Marching Band", who changed the way we present live shows at Overlook. Now this 50-plus member group of mystics are re-inventing the concept of the drive-in in Denver, Colorado for three weekends this month, beginning Aug. 14th. If you're lucky enough to be nearby, don't miss out on this joyful sonic bath of post-apocalyptic unifying magic.
GRAB YOUR TICKETS!
 
Missing spooky stories? Our friends at E3W Productions, creators of multiple fan-favorite immersive showcases at the last two Overlook Film Festivals, have adapted their series of long-form shows into an all new podcast series that debuted this month. Each episode of IN ANOTHER ROOM takes place in a different room of a notoriously haunted house, spanning its entire sordid history.
