Brooklyn Horror Film Festival Announces 2019 Dates + Opens Submissions

The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival is fast gaining a reputation as one of the best genre fests in the country following their biggest and most successful run in 2018. Today comes news that the annual event has announced their 2019 dates. If you’re already looking to make the most out of the next Halloween season, consider a trip to Brooklyn from October 17th-24th, 2019.

The announcement also marks the opening for submissions, so if you’re a genre filmmaker with a short or feature-length movie that fits the bill, you can enter at FilmFreeway and Withoutabox. Badges are also available for advanced purchase, at the festival’s official website, HERE.

Here’s the scoop from yesterday’s press release:

BHFF will once again grow in 2019 with the addition of Cobble Hill Cinemas as one of our primary screening locations. The festival will continue our engagements with Nitehawk Cinema, Made in NY Media Center at IFP, and various locations throughout Brooklyn, confidently bringing together the dynamic cinephile culture that sets the borough apart.

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. “ALTER has quickly established itself as a premium platform for emerging, diverse, and established filmmakers and we couldn’t be more excited to help them discover the great talent we have at the festival.” said Festival Director Justin Timms.

Expect to hear a lot more about the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival in the coming months.
