New Orleans Horror Film Festival

The New Orleans Horror Film Festival is a festival created by horror filmmakers for horror filmmakers. As film auteurs ourselves, we appreciate and admire the blood, sweat and tears that go into making movies, especially on an independent level. It’s no small wonder and no great surprise that so many of today’s top directors got their start in “low budget horror”. With determination and imagination, these artists have created some truly memorable work that has encouraged and inspired a new generation of filmmakers. The NOHFF is committed to celebrating the craft and the art of genre filmmaking at its best. Please visit the official NOHFF website at www.neworleanshorrorfilmfestival.com. Thanks.
