HSHFF is noted for being one of the best festivals to attend, filmmakers will find a personal connection with the festival staff and crew. It's a great place for "Students" and "Independent Filmmakers" to rub shoulders with "Horror Icons" and "Hollywood Producers". The Hot Springs Arts & Film Institute presents the Hot Springs International Horror Film Festival. The festival is held annually at the Historic Central Theater located in downtown Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas.

Our mission is to inspire & promote talented filmmakers & artists from around the world. Hot Springs Arts and Film Institute provides opportunities for networking, exhibition, education, and screenings. We provide a unique venue for the public to experience films on the “Big Screen” often with the filmmakers available to answer questions and share their insights with the audiences. Industry professionals and celebrities are on hand to give seminars and meet filmmakers. Genres accepted include Horror, Thriller Sci-Fi & Fantasy

HSHFF strives to support independent film and filmmakers. Many of the feature films selected each year get help acquiring distribution deals often before the festival ends. The Hot Springs Arts & Film Institute sponsors festival winners and some runners up by offering independent screenings and tracking filmmakers to diverse distribution options.
