The 10th annual Horrible Imaginings Film Festival returns to the Frida Cinema from August 30th thru September 1st!

Established in San Diego, CA in 2009, the annual Horrible Imaginings Film Festival showcases the newest voices in horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genre cinema over a multi-day event that consists of film screenings, diverse panels, parties, and networking sessions.

Our mission is to spotlight genre cinema, amplify artistic voices, and foster a community of acceptance. We sincerely believe in the sharing and exploring of our deepest fears, desires, and anxieties in a community setting. This festival allows audience members the opportunity to not only explore these complex emotions but also exorcise them.

Over the past 9 years, we have screened over 700 genre titles and welcomed over 8,000 passionate attendees. More info: https://hifilmfest.com/
