The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival is a premier east coast genre festival that embodies the spirit of Brooklyn. Taking place in venues throughout the borough, we showcase the best new independent films, throw parties, host events, and more. The 2021 edition will take place from October 14-21. 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!

Stretching eight days, the festival will offer the bulk of its screening and events on the weekend, while the weekday schedule will be lighter.


2021 Festival Badges are available here. A limited amount of individual tickets will be released in September.
