Another year and another chance to meet your favorite actor/actresses at a Horror convention. 2020 horror cons were a bust, thanks a lot COVID. 2021 we were at 70% power at the conventions. 2022 is the year of the “Horror Con Comeback.” We’re calling it now.

    Popular Horror News Site horrornews.net is Offering a Distribution Deal

    Horror News Net Logo

    HNN Film Festival is accepting feature film submissions starting on June 8th, 2020 through Film Freeway.   HNN Film Festival is sponsored by Horrornews.net and in association with Bayview Entertainment, the FIRST PRIZE winner will get a distribution deal to get their feature film released on the “HNN presents” distribution label. 
    HNN recognizes that the landscape of the entertainment business is changing as repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges we face social distancing in our theaters and festivals.   Therefore, the HNN Film Festival will completely be an “at home” experience.  

    “HNN Film Festival seems like the natural progression of things. I’ve been involved in the business of horror for over a decade, specifically supporting the efforts of independent filmmakers. I think we all strive to watch the perfect film and while some say that’s an impossible task, what’s enjoyable is the journey. The endless search to find the holy grail of movies, or by horror standards, the unholy grail. You know it’s a good film when you are sitting on the edge of your seat and experiencing the story along with the characters. You know it’s a great film when that feeling of excitement stays with you long after you stopped watching the movie.” –  HNN Manager, Michael Joy
