The Magic of Horror is a festival for independent films and art in the genre that orchestrates your nightmares!

To us, the real "magic" of a horror film is in the creation of the story and the visual aspects. It all starts with the writers who dream up the scary stories and the directors who envision them for the screen. But we also celebrate the set designers who create the atmosphere, the costume designers and makeup artists who create the look for the characters, and the special effects artists who work their magic to make us believe that something terrible is happening. And of course, we certainly don't forget about the cinematographers that capture all the magic, or the actors who bring it all to life!

Official Selection films and trailers will be screening throughout the day with Q&A sessions with the attending film-makers. There are also special interest blocks that include music videos, horror artwork, screenwriters, and the top films in our “Give Us Your Worst” film contest!

This year we are showing both the 2020 and the 2021 film selections. Audience members will be able to vote for their favorites for the Audience Choice Awards that are announced at the end of each day!

The Big Awards Show takes place at the very end of the two-day event when we reveal the winners of this year’s jury awards and hand out the skeleton trophies!
