Terror Film Festival is a bad-azz, blood chilling, alien probing international genre arts film festival, founded for the purpose of offering filmmakers, screenwriters and movie lovers more. TFF is a new breed of film festival and is run like no other film festival in the world, because it’s designed to help promote YOU, the creative artist. The festival runs every October in Philadelphia and we offer cash prizes, a world-class Screenwriting Competition, and the coveted Claw Awards. Prizes, exposure, awards, fun, and some of the best parties on the planet. And it’s all presented by the genre diva fashionista herself, Princess Horror!

Plus, every SELECTED project receives Two Bad-Azz VIP Passes to attend the festival (a $200 value). Plus, we’re the only festival in the world who places your photo, poster, website link, and synopsis on our website JUST FOR SUBMITTING A PROJECT. TFF pioneered the concept in 2006 and we’re proud to continue to offer it to our creative artists.

Terror Film Festival is dedicated to the art of genre (horror, fantasy, sci-fi, thriller, dark drama), the filmmakers and screenwriters who make great genre movies, and the fans who love them. For our FILMMAKERS, we offer Claw Awards and prizes, and we strive to get you recognized as a filmmaker and for your film to be celebrated and distributed. And it doesn’t matter if your film’s already been screened somewhere else or what year it was made. For our SCREENWRITERS, we offer awards and prizes for the sake of great writing to help support your writing talent and career. And for the MOVIE LOVERS, we have only one mission…to thrill the living daylights out of you!!

Terror Film Festival is located in the heart of Philadelphia PA at the prestigious Ethical Society Building at Rittenhouse Square. Philadelphia is a great place for filmmaking and filmmakers and each neighborhood contains a wealth of incredible shooting possibilities. And thanks to our amazing Greater Philadelphia Film Office, Philadelphia has a tremendous filmmaking history, rich with film and television production, such as, The “Rocky” movie series, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Cold Case, The Colbert Report, Invincible, National Treasure, The Sixth Sense, The Italian Job, Marley & Me, 12 Monkeys…and the list goes on and on. Over the years, over 250 major productions (and even more indies) have graced the streets of Philly, and Terror Film Festival is right in the middle of it all.

Terror Film Festival is all about horror, fantasy, sci-fi, thriller, drama and screenplay. Our call for entries for this worldwide film festival is focused on getting as many filmmakers and screenwriters involved with the festival as possible to help promote them and their careers. And as one of the premiere horror film festivals celebrating independent film, TFF is a halloween event that brings the best films to the audience. That’s what we think being a horror film festival is all about.
