2019 Horrible Imaginings Poster - FINAL.png

Established in San Diego, CA in 2009, the annual Horrible Imaginings Film Festival showcases the newest voices in horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genre cinema over a multi-day event that consists of film screenings, diverse panels, parties, and networking sessions.

Our mission is to spotlight genre cinema, amplify artistic voices, and foster a community of acceptance. We sincerely believe in the sharing and exploring of our deepest fears, desires, and anxieties in a community setting. This festival allows audience members the opportunity to not only explore these complex emotions but also exorcise them.

Over the past 9 years, we have screened over 700 genre titles and welcomed over 8,000 passionate attendees.


The 2019 Horrible Imaginings Film Festival will be hosted at The Frida Cinema in Orange County, CA.
