The inaugural Texas Terrors Film Festival will take place on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, at the historic Texas Theatre in Dallas, Texas.

Texas Terrors is an indie/grass roots short film festival celebrating the fun in bone-chilling horror. We’re less concerned with Hollywood-style slickness than with creativity, originality, and passion. The festival will feature a diverse array of scary stuff, and provide a fun evening of chills and thrills.

BONUS! Patrons of the first TTFF will get a super-cool exclusive, limited edition 11″ x 17″ poster commemorating the event! FREE to all ticketholders, while supplies last.

We are accepting submissions for the festival NOW! If you are a filmmaker and would like to submit, please read over the “Rules and Stuff” page, and the information below.

First and foremost, your film does not have to be made in Texas, or Texas-themed to enter. Texas is merely the location of the festival.

This is a short film festival, with a maximum length of 22 minutes. Anything longer will not be considered.

There is no restriction on when your film was made, or how many festivals it has already played. However, we do favor films that are not currently available for public viewing on YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

That said, if our festival will be a world premiere or a Texas premiere for your film, please let us know, and we will make note of this in the program.

What We Want: horror; horror-comedy; monsters; psycho-killers; supernatural horror; horror-sci-fi; fantasy-horror; avant-garde/weird; documentaries on horror-related subjects; anything vaguely connected with horror.

What We Don’t Want: rape and/or degradation; “torture porn”; explicit sex; crime-suspense; fan films or anything utilizing licensed characters or IP that you don’t own; music videos.
