With emphasis on new and independent filmmakers, the annual Screamfest Horror Film Festival consistently unearths previously unseen gems, many of which go on to national acclaim (e.g., Paranormal Activity). Programming includes premieres of short subjects and independent feature films, along with a screenplay competition. Screenings frequently feature filmmaker question-and-answer sessions, providing a great opportunity for fans to meet the next generation of horror icons.
