FEARnyc Horror Festival

New York City's biggest horror film festival.

About

Run by a team of horror and live event professionals who've worked with such companies as A24, Sony Pictures, Slamdance, and the Tribeca Film Festival, FEARnyc is an annual horror film festival featuring dozens of film screenings in NYC as well as horror-themed experiential events, art installations, music performances, theater, photography exhibits, Q&As with writers, directors, and casts, and more.
