What is
Horror Films In Hotlanta?

"Horror Films in Hotlanta" is a horror film festival in Atlanta, Georgia.

This annual event showcases horror films from around the world. Atlanta has a great film scene in general, but also a dedicated horror film community that is eager to see new films. All flavors of horror are accepted including creatures, suspense, vampires, zombies, psycho killers, dark comedy, animation and other horrific situations that will make our audience jump. We've recruited 12 judges in the Atlanta area that are ready to watch every minute of every film submitted.

We are also looking for horror film screenplays and hope to recognize exceptional work that can one day be produced into a short or feature film.
