Schedule


2021 Portland Horror Film Festival™ is July 28th-August 5th at the Hollywood Theatre and streaming!

Now that Oregon is cautiously reopening, and the Governor has lifted most COVID-19 restrictions, the 2021 festival will take place with both select in-person screenings at the Hollywood Theatre (finally!), also streaming on-line, plus additional streaming-exclusive films!

We’ve heard from many of you that you’re ready to come back into the theater, while a significant number are still uncomfortable in a crowded venue and would prefer to stream at home. We also discovered last year that streaming helps those with mobility and other issues enjoy the festival in comfort, many for the first time. It appears that streaming is here to stay, and we are embracing its positive impact on the festival world with the first fully hybrid festival in Portland, Oregon since the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown our beautiful city in March of 2020!

Prepare yourself for Portland Horror Film Festival’s Summer of Fear! Featuring live in-person shows at the Hollywood Theatre and exclusive streaming content.
