This October, HorrorFest turns 20! And we want you all to be part of the spine-tingling celebration!

Since the early 2000's, HorrorFest has been scaring the pants off of audiences in Southern Utah every October by way of classic horror films and deliciously ghoulish (and creative) homegrown efforts made by storytellers from all over the state.

In October 2020, HorrorFest broadened its horizons by way of opening up its doors to genre storytellers from all around the globe, and in October 2022, this amazing trend will continue!

So... If you've made a horror short or feature that you're proud of, be sure to submit it to us! Additionally, HorrorFest International hosts a screenplay contest so you can send your feature and short scripts our way as well!

Our team of expert horror curating programmers will sift through all the terrifying goodness you can dish out all in an effort to put together the ultimate lineup to play over the course of four fright-filled days in St. George, UT this October!

In addition to a lineup comprised of horror-inspired greatness from all around the world, HorrorFest International will also offer up retrospective screenings, filmmaker panels, a live script read, a costume competition, horror trivia, our legendary Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge (The Halloween Edition), and plenty of heart-stopping surprises.

Of course, it all starts with you, the fearless storyteller! Once our submission portal goes live, be sure to submit your genre-based shorts, features, and screenplays! No matter where you're from and no matter how terrifying or edgy your film is, we want to see what you've got!

Most importantly...We want you to scare the hell out of us because that's what horror is all about!
