Screamfest Horror Film Festival Description

The Screamfest Horror Film Festival is the largest and longest running horror film festival in the United States. Held annually at the Regal Cinemas theater at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles, the festival showcases new work from independent filmmakers of the Horror genre.

Known for discovering and premiering Paranormal Activity, the 10-day festival generally runs during mid-October and features around 20 films/shorts. Started in 2001 by two movie producers who wanted to highlight horror and sci-fi filmmakers, the Screamfest Horror Film Festival has now become the most highly anticipated horror film festival in the country.

Other past horror films that have been screened at Screamfest include Crawl, Psycho, A Tale of Two Sisters, and 30 Days of Night.

The official Screamfest Horror Film Festival opening night party takes place after the first film is screened at L.A. Live. The event includes a hosted bar and hors d’oeuvres; you must be 21 or over to attend. Opening night admission tickets, which include the film and party, are generally around $42. Other officially sponsored parties are usually announced during the film festival.

Patrons can buy tickets to each individual film for around $11, or the ‘All Movie Pass,’ which allows admission with priority seating to all film screenings, for around $155. Guests can also purchase the ‘Full Festival Pass’ for around $310, which provides entrance to all film screenings, parties, special events, and the awards ceremony.
