The 19th New York City Horror Film Festival is back and Virtual!!
The New York City Horror Film Festival (NYCHFF) is in its 19th year and continues to be one of New York City’s longest enduring festivals, a favorite with horror fans and filmmakers. The Festival will run eight days virtually this year, beginning December 2nd and ending December 9th. Over 50 international and national filmmakers will be screening features and shorts, including a premiere of The Changed with Tony Todd. This year we are proud to announce that over 40% of our filmmakers are women.
NYCHFF was the brainchild of Michael J. Hein as a venue for newer independent horror filmmaking. Michael created the festival in 2002. George Romero was the first recipient of the Festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award, followed by other classic scare masters, including:
Roger Corman, Frank Henenlotter, Robert Englund, Tobe Hooper, Angus Scrimm, Herschell Gordon Lewis, the beloved late Wes Craven, Tony Todd, Tom Savini, Mick Garris, Andrea Barbeau, and many more. After Michael’s passing in 2011, the Festival created the Michael J.
Hein Achievement Award to celebrate the hard work and perseverance of creators in the field. Rob Zombie, Stuart Gordon, Tom Atkins were the first recipients of this award.
In addition to screenings, festival-goers will also be able to enjoy and participate in virtual panel events; some hosted by award-winning filmmakers and artists such as Emmy award winner Josh Turi. The panels will include international Latin filmmakers; women in horror,
scriptwriters, and many more. Also, just for fans, we have a horror Cos-Play contest. The winner of the Cos-Play contest will receive a VIP Chiller pass to this years’ festival.
