The Overlook Film Festival’s four-day celebration of all things horror returns to New Orleans March 30 – April 2! Famous for both its nomadic nature (it began in Estes Park, CO, at the infamous Stanley Hotel, took a detour up to Oregon’s Timberline Lodge, and then ultimately landed in New Orleans, LA) and its penchant for pairing immersive ARG games with fun live events, awesome guests, and – last, but certainly not least – an entire slate of horror movies.

Today is the LAST DAY to purchase your festival pass at a reduced price! Festival Pass holders get priority access to the best of the fest, including all films, parties, panels, special events, as well as first grab at ticketed immersive experiences. Prices will increase on February 1st, 12am CST. So don’t wait, get your passes right now. This year’s festivities will include a multi-day interactive experience referred to as “the game”, this year’s game is Lingering Echoes from guest designers The Ministry of Peculiarities. Check out details straight from our Overlook pals below.

While the games of years past have featured sinister standalone storylines, Lingering Echoes instead wraps around the festival as a whole, connecting every piece of immersive programming as part of one giant mystery. Stop by the Ministry’s field office to join their investigation – play as little, or as much as you like – and expect interactions with live performers, light puzzle solving (if that’s your thing), and a story that stretches from Opening Night to our Closing Night Party. As a reminder, participating in the Immersive Game itself is free for all passholders

As for our immersive horror selections, we’ll be featuring creators like Candle House Collective, E3W Productions, Yannick Trapman-O’Brien, and an all-new bespoke experience from Tarologist and Soothsayer Jared Kopf. Each piece highlights the unique power of live performance – often for just a single audience member at a time – so they will be separately ticketed events. Prices will range from $20 to $65, and Overlook Pass Holders will have early access to book a ticket. We’ll have on-sale details and a few more surprises soon!

Oh, and one word of warning: When you buy a ticket to one of our immersive shows, you may find yourself a bigger part of Lingering Echoes than you first expected…

Stay tuned for festival lineup and full schedule!
