NIGHTSTREAM film festival returns, kicking off today and running through October 13th. This year's festival is an entirely online event, produced by produced by the Boston Underground Film Festival, Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, North Bend Film Festival, and Overlook Film Festival, joining forces to bring audiences one singular online destination. You can take a look at the full schedule here, including incredible screenings (thirty-one feature films and four short blocks to be exact), panels and more.
Notable guests including David Lowery on his epic fantasy THE GREEN KNIGHT, Akela Cooper, writer of the James Wan directed MALIGNANT, to discuss the recent smash horror hit, and Creepshow showrunner Greg Nicotero, who will dive into the show’s newest season in a Shudder presented conversation. The fest will also feature a panel event to precede the launch of Shudder’s upcoming HORROR NOIRE anthology next month, with segment writers Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes, and invite back drag superstar Peaches Christ to celebrate the iconic Chucky franchise with its creator Don Mancini, as well as returns of popular events presented by The Future of Film Is Female and the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies.
In addition to the festival lineup, NIGHTSTREAM has teamed up with FANGORIA to present a virtual Anniversary Party!
