Get ready horror fans, as the 12th annual Crimson Screen Horror Film Fest is back and is set to take place from May 9-11, 2025. We are thrilled to announce that Best of South Carolina has named us one of the top 10 festivals in the state, and we are proud to be recognized as a "Top 100 Best Reviewed" film festival on FilmFreeway!

For our 12th year, we are excited to bring back the live event to COLUMBIA, SC. 


We will be screening and awarding all types of horror feature films, short films, and screenplays, including slashers, thrillers, zombies, vampires, music videos, documentaries, experimental, student films, and more from all over the world.


All films featured in the festival will be competing for a "CRIMMY" award in many categories, including "Best Feature", "Best Short", "Best Director", "Best Actor", and more! And if you're a cosplay enthusiast, you're in luck!


Come dressed in costume and walk the dREaD carpet! We want to see zombies, monsters, or whatever you can think of. Keep an eye on our site and social media pages for updated information.
