What the filmmakers are saying:

“I just wanted to thank you for having us at the Atlanta Horror Film Festival.  You and your entire team of volunteers were so welcoming and gracious from the moment we stepped onto the Goat Farm.  From the warm reception, to the incredible venue, to the high caliber of work screened, to the delicious wine...we all had a truly memorable weekend.   It was especially nice to find VAMPIRE VAMPIRE VAMPIRE VAMPIRE so well received.  You really highlighted our work by playing it two nights!  What an unexpected and exciting touch.   We will certainly be recommending the Atlanta Horror Film Festival to all of our friends and hope to return soon.” Alyson Weaver from “Vampire, Vampire, Vampire, Vampire”

“It was really nice meeting you and the gang. What a great group of people! I really had a blast talking with everyone, as well as catching a number of the films you'd screened. And once more, thank you so much for showing The Feed!”  Steve Gibson from “The Feed”

“Had an incredible time at the Atlanta Horror Film Festival this weekend! Great crowds, fun films, made new friends, and won the raffle for John Landis' new book "Monsters In The Movies"! Most fun I've *ever* had at a horror film festival! Thank you so much to you for treating the Take Me Out team like rock stars (including scheduling two additional screenings), the awesome staff of volunteers, and the Goat Farm Arts Complex for hosting!” Michael Harper from “Take Me Out.”

“A HUGE thank you to the Atlanta Horror film Festival everyone there was great...and it was an honor to be included in such a great batch of films!!! “  Richard Greenwood Jr. from “Hinnon Valley”

We had a fantastic screening at the Atlanta Horror Film Festival. I'd like to thank everyone who attended the screening, and I would also like to thank everyone at the fest” Ron Mclellen from “And All Through the House”

Just wanted to write you a short note and tell you what a great weekend I had in Atlanta. I saw so many great films!  And I was honored to be a part of it and especially honored today to find Burn had won an award.  What a great festival! It was great meeting you and the others involved in the festival and I'm excited to keep in touch.  Thank you again for inviting me.”

Jerry Pyle from “Burn”

The 8th Annual Atlanta Horror Film Festival presents the very best independent films from across the world as we celebrated the art of horror from October 16 -19, 2014.

Since 2006, the festival has been a favorite of filmmakers and fans from Atlanta and beyond. Our focus is to celebrate independent cinema, and we strive to feature as many great films as we can during this great week of screenings.

AHFF showcases horror, sci-fi, gore, thrillers, supernatural, dark comedies, animation, expERIEmentals, drama, cult - almost every genre you can imagine!

Although we love traditional horror, we are not attempting to create the typical showcase of blood and guts. AHFF presents cutting-edge films that represent the new face of horror - films that audiences can’t and won’t forget
