About

The Rock Horror in Rio Film Festival is more than a film screener, it’s an event that unites the best of the horror, thriller, and fantasy films with rock & roll in a big party for moviegoers who love music, and cinema.

Our huge halloween themed pajama party will take place in one of the most interesting and hip locations of Rio de Janeiro: The Cinemateca do MAM - Modern Art Museum, Casa de Cultura Laura Alvim and the Reserva Cultural Niterói. 

Rio de Janeiro has a bohemian, cosmopolitan and underground atmophere to receive our national and foreign guests and our cinemas with the Guanabara Bay backdrop, is the perfect location for a fantastic film festival that culminates with a rock & roll party every night. 

Prepare your heart for scaring and exciting nights filled with the best of the national and international thrillers, and a lot of rock & roll, drinks in test tubes, and lots of purple hotdogs.

EXHIBITION: The Rock Horror in Rio films are screened in cinemas and to ensure the quality, organization and homogeneity of the projections, we only use DCPs (2k, interop, scope or flat). In case, you can't provide us a DCP, we offer the filmmaker exhibition package for pratical reasons and to avoid shipping and taxes costs. For that is necessary to send us a H264 file 1998 x 1018, 24P with stereo or 5.1 sound. We only receive online files up to 10GB. A service charge will be applied for the DCP production. Films that do not respect these rules will be disqualified.

SUBTITLES - All foreign language films must have Brazilian Portuguese subtitles already inserted in the projection file submitted for the DCP production. Obs: All subtitles will be reviewed, if they do not follow the mandatory quality requirements of the festival, they will be rejected. We do not accept subtitles translated by automatic services online. Send us the SRT file to verification before sending the actual screening file. Films that do not respect these rules will be disqualified.
