Following our second edition in October 2017, where the festival doubled in size from our inaugural year, The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival will be expanding significantly once again in 2018. Already established as a premier East Coast genre festival, we’re elated to announce we’ll now span eight days, running from October 11-18, 2018. Adding four more days to the schedule means we’ll have the ability to screen more of the best independent genre film from around the world!

We’re extremely excited to be partnering with Nitehawk Cinema in 2018 which will become one of our primary screening venues, including Opening and Closing Night. The festival will also continue its tradition of extending our reach to old and new venues across Brooklyn, bringing together the dynamic cinephile culture that sets the borough apart. Stretching eight days the festival will offer the bulk of its screening and events on the weekend, while the weekday schedule will be lighter.


Individual tickets will go on sale in September. To select films before then you must be a badgeholder – 2018 Festival Badges are available here.


Festival schedule will be released in early September.
