Event Description
Horror Realm Film Festival

The Horror Realm Film Festival is an extension of the long running Horror Realm Convention. Horror Realm has long supported independent filmmakers and has created the film festival to increase this support. The festival will take place in the historic Hollywood Theater Dormont in Pittsburgh, PA on May 22 to 25, 2014.

The mission of the festival is to provide an affordable opportunity for filmmakers in the horror genre to have their films evaluated by a qualified board of judges, have their work viewed by fans, compete for awards, increase their film’s visibility and possibly find distribution for their film. The festival’s panel of judges has been carefully selected from the horror community and is comprised of filmmakers and writers.

Finalists will consist of the top three films in each award category. Unlike many film competitions, all entrants’ films will be shown the weekend of the festival.

Awards (non-monetary) will be given for the following categories:

Feature film:

  • Best film o Best director

  • Best screenplay

  • Best cinematography 

  • Best actor & actress o

  • Best supporting actor & actress o

  • Best FX makeup

Short film:

  • Best film

  • Best director

  • Best screenplay

  • Best cinematography

  • Best actor & actress

The opening reception will be held on Thursday, May 22 at 8 PM. Screenings of entries will be held Friday, May 23 from 10 AM to midnight and Saturday, May 24 from 10 AM to 10 PM. A party follows the screenings on Saturday. Screenings continue on Sunday, May 25 from 11 AM to 2 PM, followed by the closing awards ceremony at 2:30 PM.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.showclix.com/events/hrff14. Single day tickets for screenings/awards are available for $10 each, weekend screening/awards tickets are $25 each and VIP are $40, which includes admission to all screenings, awards program and both parties.  Single day and weekend tickets may also be purchased at the door; VIP tickets are advanced purchase only.

Horror Realm is also a supporter of the independent Hollywood Theater, which reopened in 2011 thanks to the efforts of a group of community leaders, area residents, and local film lovers who formed the non-profit organization Friends of the Hollywood Theater. The theater’s mission is not only to show movies, but act as a community center where the public can enjoy film festivals, concerts, and special events such as big screen viewings of sporting events and the Academy Awards. The theater is located at 1449 Potomac Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15216.
