The Death's Parade Film Festival is born from our fear-- and love -- of the unknown. The lurking shadows, the bumps in the night, the feeling of eyes watching you sleep. We can't wait to share my adoration and obsession of horror with the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since this is our inaugural run, the theme of this event will be INSPIRATION. What excites you? What gets you going? Show us what drives you to create that wonderful, terrifying, insidious art. Show us the passion, the energy!

It is our goal to provide you, the filmmaker, a dark and brooding platform to display your talents within the horror genre. The Death's Parade Film Festival will carefully select the best of the best in regards to horror shorts, features, and animations to present to our San Jose audience.
