Beyond a top notch festival experience, HorrorHound offers that which very few other festival outlets can: Access to the most knowledgable, well versed and influential minds in Indie Horror, as well as exposure to a rabid fanbase across multiple platforms. There is no better way to bring your film to the forefront of a vastly oversaturated market than through the HorrorHound Film Festival.

John Woodruff (Animal Among Us)

We are truly proud that our film NSFW had its worldwide premiere in the eclectic, inspiring, encouraging and all-round wonderful HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival. It was an overwhelmingly positive experience that exceeded every expectation -- in terms of who we met, what we did, and just how much fun we had. Receptive audiences who like to be challenged -- like the audiences at HorrorHound -- are few and far between, and are the reason we worked so hard to make NSFW. The convention was an absolute blast, and I’ve met very few people who match Jason Hignite’s passion to champion the films and the talent that he loves. We'll never forget our time in Cincinnati, or how fantastic and unexpected it was to take home the award for Best Short. Now we’ll have to try doubly hard to make a new film good enough to deserve a spot in next year’s festival!

Was the best event I've ever appeared at. Your film fest is the best and the HorrorHound crowds were amazing!

Albert Pyun (Interstellar Civil War)

The awesome part of this film festival is the incredible volunteers and organizers, as well as the great selection of films. The projector and sound system was high grade, and the filmmakers networking event with food and drinks was great! I'd highly recommend this festival to any horror filmmakers, whether with a short or feature.
