To provide an affordable opportunity for filmmakers in the
horror genre to have their films evaluated by a qualified board
of judges, have their work viewed by fans, compete for awards,
increase their film’s visibility and possibly find distribution
for their film.
The Horror Realm Film Festival is an extension of the long
running Horror Realm Convention. Horror Realm has long supported
independent filmmakers and has created the film festival to
increase this support. The festival will take place in the
historic Hollywood Theater Dormont in Pittsburgh, PA. The
festival’s panel of judges has been carefully selected from the
horror community and is comprised of filmmakers and writers.
Finalists will consist of the top three films in each award
category. All entrants’ films will be shown the weekend of the
festival. Finalist films will be given priority in screening
