The 7th Annual Freak Show Horror Film Festival
Celebrate the Art of Independent Horror! This international horror genre film festival is the brainchild of FEAR FILM Motion Picture Studios Owner Robert J. Massetti. As a veteran independent horror filmmaker, Robert wanted to make a film festival that celebrates the independent horror filmmaker by giving the artist a forum to show his or her work.
The festival is a showcase of some of the most talented, up and coming horror filmmakers in the world and tries hard to help filmmakers reach their goals with their films. Located in the heart of all the best resturants, attractions, and shopping Orlando has to offer, this is a festival not to be missed for fun and exposure.
The filmmakers accepted into the festival recieve 2 Free Weekend Passes which includes Spooky Empire’s Ultimate Horror Weekend worth $100. Filmmakers also compete for the “FREAKY” Award for outstanding achievement in 9 different categories which include:
