2018 Halloween Film Festival Tickets on Sale Now
The 3rd Annual Halloween International Film Festival, presented by OBX Entertainment, returns to Kill Devil Hills during HalloWeek on the Outer Banks, October 25-27, 2018, and tickets for the event are on sale now.
This year’s festival will feature more than 40 independent films from around the world, 10 of which were filmed in North Carolina and four were filmed entirely on the Outer Banks, including the World Premiere of the locally produced horror short Boy, from the director of Lost in Buffalo City.
This year’s feature films will be the North Carolina Premieres of the family friendly Baby Frankenstein starring Andre Gower of The Monster Squad, an epic zombie thriller from China called Lost in Apocalypse, the haunt industry documentary Haunters: The Art of the Scare, and the horror anthology 10/31. Among the 48 short films selected, Kiss the Devil in the Dark stars legendary creature actor Doug Jones (The Shape of Water, Hellboy, Hocus Pocus), and the international documentary For the Love of the Boogeyman: 40 Years of Halloween will have its U.S. Premiere.
All Festival film screenings will once again be shown at R/C Theatres Movies 10 in Kill Devil Hills, including Q&A sessions, nightly meet and greets, photo ops on our Orange Carpet, and more events to be announced. Our state-of-the-art host venue features a massive 36-foot tall movie screen, stadium seating, full digital projection capabilities, and a complete lineup of refreshments and snacks available.
Discounted oceanfront rooms are available at the official host hotel, the Sea Ranch Resort in Kill Devil Hills, when you mention the Halloween Film Festival or use the code “HIFF” online when making reservations. (Click here for details.)
The Halloween Film Festival will be followed by our 5th Annual Outer Banks Halloween Parade, the largest Halloween celebration in Dare County, on Sunday, Oct. 28 at Aviation Park in Kill Devil Hills.
The goal of the festival is to build the film industry on the Outer Banks, inspiring the attending filmmakers to bring future productions to the area while giving locally-based talents exposure to a wider, like-minded audience, all while celebrating a collective passion for Halloween. It is a networking event for industry professionals, and a fan experience unlike any other in the region.
Known as the “land of beginnings”, the Outer Banks of North Carolina is the site of America’s first urban legend, The Lost Colony of Roanoke Island, the true story of the first English colonists to land in the new world only to mysteriously vanish without explanation in 1587. The Outer Banks is also where the infamous pirate Blackbeard was killed; and it is where the Wright Brothers achieved with the first powered flight in 1903, in what is now the town of Kill Devil Hills.
Sponsors of the 2018 Halloween International Film Festival include the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, Gallop Funeral Services, Larry Hobbs, the Outer Banks Sentinel, WOBR Pirate 95.3., and Halloween Daily News.
