Horrible Imaginings


The Horrible Imaginings Film Festival is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that showcases art and film that explores the darker or more macabre sides of the human condition. The festival was founded in 2010 in San Diego, California in order to promote and spotlight exemplary new artistic voices in what is commonly known as the horror genre. It is our mission to encourage an elevation of the genre through film discussion, question and answer sessions, panels, and other presentations.

The horror genre has long been a staple of film and literature, boasting a significant number of fans and devoted connoisseurs who dedicate much time and money to its exploration. Because the city of San Diego has long had a notable lack of film festivals devoted to the genre, Horrible Imaginings has been able to fill a perceived need and remain a successful enterprise during the first five years of our existence.

Since opening our doors in November of 2010, Horrible Imaginings founder Miguel Rodriguez has become a respected scholar and programmer in the San Diego community. Horrible Imaginings has been asked to curate or introduce programs for UCSD’s Artpwr, FilmOut San Diego, the San Diego Latino Film Festival, The San Diego Opera, The San Diego Asian Film Festival, The San Diego Italian Film Festival, Midnight Madness screenings at The Ken Cinema, a monthly film series at the San Diego Public Library, Film Geeks screenings at the Digital Gym Cinema, and more. Rodriguez has also appeared several times as an expert on KPBS, the local public radio station. This exposure, as well as quality programming, has led to a loyal community of regular audience members who return year after year to Horrible Imaginings Events.

We are thrilled to call San Diego’s wonderful Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) our new home. With a theater capacity of 226 seats and single screening tickets available, we hope to draw at least 400 people into the theater alone. In addition to this, we are planning outreach in the Prado of Balboa Park, increasing the visibility by an extremely significant margin—right in the midst of San Diego’s most beloved tourist spot. Horrible Imaginings Film Festival promises to be a new force in San Diego that is here to stay. As audience member Doug Lathrop put it, “San Diego is too sunny! We need some darkness!”
