Call for Entries! 2021 Submissions open!


The 6th Annual Portland Horror Film Festival™ takes place June 23-26, 2021! Film submissions are now open through our submission partner, FilmFreeway.

Portland Horror Film Festival™ is a 4-day international festival of terror, bringing horror from around the world to creepy Portland, OR, a tree-filled land with a deep and dark history. We’re looking for innovative films in all horror genres, from independent filmmakers, small studios, and students anywhere in the world.

We love daylight horror, creeping woodland dread, urban frights, and anything else that will define the new generation of horror, particularly horror from diverse voices: foreign horror, women directors, student films, LGBTQ filmmakers, and more! The world of horror is wide, the experience of fear is universal, and new voices define the future of the genre.

Submit your film to us through FilmFreeway by the following deadlines. Because early submissions makes our job much easier, the earlier you submit, the more discounted submission fees are.

  • February 8, 2021 – Early deadline
  • March 1, 2021 – February Late deadline
  • March 23, 2021 – March deadline
  • April 13, 2021 – April deadline
