The Idaho Horror Film Festival is back and kicks off the freaky festivities Thursday, October 12. The IHFF celebrates four years of fright in the Treasure Valley helping highlight local filmmakers. This seems to be that event that I’m always getting details on it when it’s pretty much over. I wanted to get you the complete list so you can make plans to attend now before it’s too late.

What is the Idaho Horror Film Festival? I will quote it right from their website. 

“The Idaho Horror Film Festival is a non-profit international film exhibition whose mission is to shine a spotlight on Idaho’s emerging filmmakers. The genre of horror is the common thread that has stitched itself into the fabric of the filmmaking community.  Through the mediums of independent film, food, music, literature, and art, we strive to expand the cultural experience within Boise’s vibrant community.   We aim to develop a supportive framework for Idaho’s emerging filmmakers with the mission of providing more access to resources and education for individuals wanting to explore the medium of film. By strengthening the film making community in Idaho, we will fan the flames of creativity and set Idaho’s film industry ablaze.”

You might not attend all of these events but squeeze in a few. This schedule is ridiculous and like a lot of fun and also a chance to be surrounded by others in case your scared (like me!)
