Each year the Eerie Horror Film Festival attracts thousands of fans,  filmmakers and screenwriters to the city of Erie, Pennsylvania, for a  four day celebration of independent cinema, featuring special celebrity  guests, screenings and workshops.

The competition based event  opens its call for entries each season on Halloween day and accepts film  and screenplay submissions from all around the world, with a special discount for students 10 – 17 years of age.

 Over 400 films have been shown at the festival since its inception,  including several world premieres and movies that eventually secured  distribution deals with major companies.

With their current and  ever expanding contacts, the Eerie Horror Film Festival hopes to play  an active role in connecting their filmmakers and screenwriters directly  with those within the industry.

The Eerie Horror Fest hopes to actively bring in more rock and  roll to the region each season!

Fans can meet their favorite  stars, buy horror related merchandise and converse with film company  representatives at the Carnival of Carnage Expo, held in conjunction  with our film screenings during the weekend of the Fest.

The  Eerie Horror Film Festival has donated a percentage of their ticket and  merchandise sales to Make-A-Wish  and has made a sizable donation to The  Second Harvest Food Bank in past years.

The Festival hopes  that their efforts continue to attract attention, tourism and economic  impact to the Erie County area and that they can provide an even bigger  and better event for attendees each and every year.

The next  Eerie Horror Film Festival & Expo takes place October, 2017 (times, dates and locations to be announced soon) in NW PA.
