Oregon Scream Week is a Horror genre independent international film festival for Horror Films and Horror Comedy Films in Portland, Oregon. We had our first Oregon Scream Week Film Festival in February 2018 and it was a huge success. People travelled from China, Japan, South Korea, Canada and from all over the US to our screenings of 54 Horror Short Films. There is an appetite for films, especially in the Northwest, that make people scream, freak out and get their hearts racing. That is why we created Oregon Scream Week. Would you like to screen your film for an audience that appreciates horror films and other dark genres? Many of the “mainstream” festivals out there may not appreciate your film or screenplay in ways that our panel of twelve judges is looking for. Sick humor, twisted stories, psychotic thrillers and horrifying moments are our specialty. Is your film ready for a theatrical release in Portland, Oregon? Please take a look at our awards list, we have plenty of opportunities for the creativity of your film or screenplay to be acknowledged. Our website is full of pictures from the last event. Every screening was sold out for the main screen and on opening night required 2 screens running at the same time.

20 Awards will be selected by the judges to recognize outstanding work and creativity.
