Horrible Imaginings Film Festival:
Horror is not always what you think!
Our mission is to amplify voices that express those emotions that make life a little more challenging. Fear, anxiety, despair, desperation, dark fantasy, unhealthy longing, terror–those parts of the human condition all of us recognize, but few of us enjoy talking about. We sincerely believe the sharing of dark stories in community settings of diverse artists and audience members not only exorcises these emotions, but also helps to foster empathy through linked experiences.
Join us in championing the horrible imaginings of filmmakers and artists by facilitating screenings, panels and forums, and networking events.
