I had a terrific experience working with their great team throughout the very organized selection process. While I wasn’t able to attend the festival in person, I was very impressed with their professionalism and excellent communication.
Amazing festival! I am very honored that my short film “Hansel” got the award for “Best Sound”! Would definitely like to submit in a future edition!
CHFF and the team always impress whether in-person or online the films are amazing and it is always a great experience.
A great experience! A festival clearly run by someone who loves the genre & its filmmakers.
Hearing the struggles this festival has gone through only makes our team want to submit again in the future. The dedication by Willy to keep the festival going made it a privilege to be selected to screen. The new venue in the heart of Chicago is a welcome change and…
The festival is a lot of fun and Chicago is just a great city. It’s rare that indie filmmakers get to screen at theaters as awesome as the patio theater and the organizers and staff are very friendly and helpful. I’d recommend to any horror filmmakers.
My film was screened and won award for best special effects. The fest was wonderful with great people running it and communication was strong. 10 out of 10 will submit again!
Super impressed with this festival’s communication. The films and screenplays were all top notch! Looking forward to being there in person someday.
Had such a wonderful experience and can’t wait to hopefully play with you guys again!! Thank you so much,
