Project Description

Screamfest Horror Film Festival provides an important platform for talented writers and directors in the art of genre films to showcase their work to the residents of County of Los Angeles and entertainment
professionals. Screamfest screens quality features and short films in competition at the TCL Chinese Theatre and is open to the general public. Screamfest showcases alumni short films on its YouTube channel to provide further awareness for the filmmakers and for audiences unable to attend the screenings.

Admittedly, not everyone likes horror films or even understands their attraction. Screamfest provides a
place for genre fans in the community to come together with like-minded people. They collectively watch
genre films and share in this cathartic experience with fellow audience members; they jump, scream and
even laugh at times. They are in a place with their peers and are able to enjoy these films together.
