NOLA Horror Film Fest 2018 - Prytania Theatre

BUY TICKETS HERE

In its eighth year, NOLA Horror Film Fest (NOLAHFF) is pleased to announce that this year’s festival will be held at the historic Prytania Theatre (5339 Prytania Street) in New Orleans on September 20th-23rd, 2018. This year’s official selections include sixty films and twenty screenplay finalists, chosen from 590 national and international submissions.

The NOLA Horror Film Fest is a festival created by horror filmmakers for horror fans. 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. Our goal is the promotion of genre filmmaking in Louisiana, as well as nationally and internationally. The NOLAHFF is committed to celebrating the craft and advancing the art form of genre films.

On the opening night of festival, audience members will enjoy the Louisiana produced feature film, The God Inside My Ear, which is produced, written, and directed by Joe Badon. The film will be followed by an Opening Night Party (location to be announced).

Our closing night feature film presentation is Framed, a selection from Spain. The film will be followed by an award ceremony, which includes selections for: Best Feature Film, Best Short Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting, Best Writing, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects, Best Makeup, and Best Unproduced Screenplay.

Through four days of the best horror and sci-fi programming (features and short film screenings, a panel discussion featuring women in horror, our annual Filmmaker Lunch, and special guests) to the Sunday night awards ceremony, the NOLA Horror Film Fest is going to be a weekend to remember.

Weekend passes, day passes, single screening tickets and a limited number of VIP Fest Passes are now available for purchase online at: https://filmfreeway.com/NOLAHorrorFilmFest/tickets. Single screening tickets will also be available at the door for $10.
