The iHorror Film Festival is less than a week away!

“We’re excited to continue the iHorror Film Festival this year,” iHorror.com founder and festival co-found Anthony Pernicka said. “There’s nothing that can substitute for the magic that’s in the air at the festival’s in-person event, but we hope that streaming the festival on the iHorror Facebook page will give the opportunity for any of our over 4.2 million fans to discover new talent emerging in the horror genre. Going digital this year is the best way to do this during a pandemic. We can’t wait until we can celebrate together again in person, which hopefully will be next October.”

The festival will be presenting awards in the following categories:

  • Best Feature Film
  • Best Short Film
  • Best Unproduced Screenplay
  • Best Director
  • Best Performance
  • Best Photography

Because of the reduction in the number of awards, every film in the festival is eligible for awards in the categories in which they qualify. For example, a short film would be eligible for Best Short, Best Director, and Best Performance.

“I’m constantly astounded at the level of quality we receive in the festival submissions,” festival co-founder Josh Noftz said. “The indie horror community is a special thing and we’re just so proud to be a small part of it.”

“I was genuinely knocked out by the screenplay submissions we received this year,” iHorror writer and festival judging coordinator Waylon Jordan said. “This was the first time we opened up the category for unproduced screenplays and the writers just blew me away. We had every sub-genre you could think of and a few I’d never considered before!”

The iHorror Film Festival 2020 is set to run Thursday, October 15 and Friday, October 16, 2020. Tickets at $14.99 for two days and festival information are available by CLICKING HERE! Stay tuned for a full schedule of films coming soon!

We hope to see you all at this amazing festival, and look for us–hopefully at an in-person festival–in 2021!
