Brooklyn Horror Film Festival…

Following the festival’s biggest year yet, Brooklyn Horror Film Festival will return October 17-24, 2019, for its fourth edition. Submissions are now open via FilmFreeway and Withoutabox for short and feature films, and badges are on sale via the official website, making for the perfect stocking stuffer!

BHFF will once again grow in 2019 with the addition of Cobble Hill Cinemas as one of our primary screening locations. The festival will continue our engagements with Nitehawk Cinema, Made in NY Media Center at IFP, and various locations throughout Brooklyn, confidently bringing together the dynamic cinephile culture that sets the borough apart.

The festival is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Gunpowder & Sky’s recently launched horror brand, ALTER. Selected short films will be eligible for review for distribution on the platform. “ALTER has quickly established itself as a premium platform for emerging, diverse, and established filmmakers and we couldn’t be more excited to help them discover the great talent we have at the festival.” said Festival Director Justin Timms.

Brooklyn Horror announces new staffing changes as Montreal-based Vanessa Meyer, Programming Manager for the Frontières Co-Production Market, joins the programming team, Development Manager Jackie Goldstein will be promoted to Director of Development, and Wynton Wong comes on as Festival Operations Manager.
