Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festivals around the world
Hey guys! Roosevelt here.
Film festivals seem to take on more importance each year as filmmakers use these events as high-profile premieres of their latest works. Some, like Sundance, are known for launching the careers of new directors. Others stir up excitement for new work from established filmmakers. This is my attempt to make a complete and current list of all the horror and science fiction film festivals in the world. This is a comprehensive guide for Horror/SciFi Film Festivals and Conventions.  Please help me keep this list updated!  If you have info, please send it here:
