The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival will return in 2020 for its fifth edition and run for another full eight days from October 15th to the 22nd in venues in Brooklyn, NY. Since the festival’s launch in 2016, The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival has continued to expand and offer an unparalleled horror-focused event, with New York Magazine calling it “One of the country’s premier indie horror showcases” and Birth.Movies.Death. hailing it as “A can’t-miss fall event for horror and film fans alike.”
Short film and feature film submissions are now open via FilmFreeway for short and feature films, and badges are on sale on the official website, so secure your seat now! The 2019 edition of the festival has featured the most filmmakers in attendance for any year so far, including Phil “CM Punk” Brooks, Trieste Kelly Dunn and writer-director Travis Stevens for the New York Premiere of The Girl on the Third Floor; director Joe Begos, composer Steve Moore and stars Stephen Lang, Tom Williamson and Linnea Wilson for the NY Premiere of the FANGORIA-backed VFW; and director/co-writer Adam Egypt Mortimer along with star Miles Robbins for BHFF’s Centerpiece film, Daniel Isn’t Real. With such a prolific lineup in 2019, 2020 is sure to deliver an even more bountiful horror cornucopia for fans and filmmakers alike.
BHFF will once again partner with Nitehawk Cinema as a primary screening venue, providing the best possible HQ for the borough’s dynamic and passionate cinephile crowd. Year-round local screenings and events are on the horizon in 2020 for fans of BHFF’s programming, and the organization promises to make this coming year the festival’s most expansive and engaging yet.
