Popcorn Frights Film Festival
August 8 - August 15
Popcorn Frights Film Festival, the Southeast United States largest international genre film festival, will celebrate its fifth year this August 8-15, 2019. The Festival is hosted in a state of the art theater that was formerly a Methodist Church in the 1940s.
Popcorn Frights showcases features and shorts by filmmakers from around the world to an audience of horror lovers and filmmakers, industry, and journalists. Amongst others, Graham Skipper, Joe Lynch, Neil Marshall, Greg McLean, Colin Minihan, Lucky McKee, Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Chuck Russell, Nicolas Pesce, Mickey Keating, and Darren Lynn Bousman have premiered their films at the Popcorn Frights Film Festival before they went on to win awards and broader recognition.
We revel in discovering new talent. We don’t discriminate: shorts, features, documentaries, animation, film, and video — all are welcome submissions.
