Chicago Horror Film Festival

2018 CHFF to be hosted in Dekalb, IL

After an exhausted search for a Chicago venue to host our long running event, we regret that we have come up short and are now out of time to secure something.

With that said, we have secured the Lincoln and Illinois Rooms at the Red Roof Inn in Dekalb, IL for our 2018 festival. This will include a discounted room rate for CHFF visitors.

We will screen films on two screens to offer more filmmakers the opportunity to screen.

Hosting this festival outside of Chicago is obviously not ideal and we recognize that and have worked constantly to avoid moving it out of the city. Our search does not end here, it continues as we try to secure something for our 2019 event. If we come up short on a Chicago venue for our 2019 festival, we will likely retire CHFF forever or offer it for sale to see if a corporate company with financial backing would like to buy the event. Or it could very well be the end.

Thank you all for your understanding, support and ongoing efforts to help keep this festival alive.
