Popcorn Frights Film Festival, Florida’s leading international genre film festival, celebrates its 2nd year in Miami this August 12 through 18, 2016, presenting a record 16 features and 17 short film premieres at the landmark O Cinema Wynwood theater.
“We’re thrilled our Popcorn Frights Film Festival returns with a vengeance for its second year to bring the best and finest in international fear to the dark heart of Miami. Bigger, bolder, bloodier, our program embraces everything outstanding about the horror genre as it aims to excite and unforgettably frighten audiences,” said Festival Co-Founders & Co-Directors Igor Shteyrenberg & Marc Ferman.
“Since the beginning of cinema as an art form, filmmakers have made films that frighten and terrify their audience proving that the suspense of a good scare can be as enjoyable and cathartic a cinematic experience as a laugh or a cry. O Cinema is delighted to be partnering with Popcorn Frights Film Festival to bring the best in horror and genre filmmaking to South Florida audiences,” said Kareem Tabsch, Co-Director of O Cinema.
The line-up for the second annual Popcorn Frights Film Festival serves up a fearsome feast with the monstrous, the macabre, and the must-see.
Popcorn Frights prides itself on providing a fertile ground for new and exciting filmmaking talent, and this year will present 17 extraordinary short films, including SXSW award-winners Manoman and Night Stalker, as well as The Puppet Man starring John Carpenter, and Portal to Hell, which features one of Roddy “Rowdy” Piper’s (They Live) final performances.
