Moviemaker Magazine's World's 50 Best Genre Festivals Dead Central's The Best Horror Festivals in the World 2021 "One of the country’s premier indie horror showcases." - Vulture "It was an ambitious event for a young festival and they pulled it off beautifully, placing them firmly on the annual festival calendar in years to come." - Film Threat "A can’t-miss fall event for horror and film fans alike" -Birth.Movies.Death "BHFF has established itself as a worthy addition to the horror festival circuit." -Entertainment Weekly "Pushing the boundaries of what can reasonably be termed horror." -Rue Morgue "The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival has already asserted itself as a must-attend genre gathering for horror lovers everywhere" -We Got This Covered "The programming and events clearly display a passion for horror." -Bloody Disgusting Last year's edition of course was in 2020, a year like no other where we became a part of Nightstream and we welcomed more films, filmmakers and ticket holders than ever before - virtually. This year Brooklyn Horror Film Festival returns October 14-21, 2021. Our plans are to hold an in-person festival, however plans for a virtual component or a pivot to virtual will be determined later in the year - but either way - Brooklyn Horror is back in October 2021! The festival is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Gunpowder & Sky’s recently launched horror brand, ALTER. Selected short films will be eligible for review for distribution on the platform. Stretching eight days, the festival will offer the bulk of its screening and events on the weekend, while the weekday schedule will be lighter. The festival will also continue with our annual HEAD TRIP shorts program, which previously was expanded into a feature film sidebar spotlighting films that push the boundaries and expectations of the horror genre.
