While we will feature the horror genre, films from other genres that are submitted will be given equal consideration for placement on the program.

Submissions are open for Features, Shorts, and Screenplays. All prizes and awards start with at least $500 CASH and a unique film festival TROPHY.

We also have room for vendors!! Our 10x10 spaces start at $100 for the ENTIRE weekend!

 

So please look over the materials and lets get the ball rolling! We welcome any participation such as interviewing, featuring, or writing about the Pittsburgh Horror Film Festival. The following press release, banner, and promo add is attached. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
