Midsummer Scream Screaming Room Film Festival 2021

Midsummer Scream was postponed in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, but we didn’t want to wait any longer to reveal dozens of the best horror and Halloween shorts that have been submitted over the past two years… so we’re making our film festival a stand alone event!

Join us July 10th and 11th as we reveal the best of the entries and, on Sunday night, the crowning of the best of the best. Curated and produced by HorrorBuzz, this is the Screaming Room Film Festival you won’t want to miss.

Limited seating available. Day passes for screening blocks available, separate admission required for special Saturday night screening and Sunday’s awards OR purchase a Weekend Pass for admission to everything!
