Buried Alive Film Festival Announces 2018 Award Winners

We had a truly amazing year this year with everyone who came out and supported BAFF 2018. Special thanks to 7 Stages TheatreAtlanta Pro AVHorror Pack, and all of our other sponsors!

The festival went off nearly without a hitch, though we’d like to extend an apology to anyone who was hoping to catch the world premiere of Clownado. Unfortunately, technical issues on the side of Extreme Entertainment caused the premiere to be cancelled. The time slot was instead filled with an extended awards ceremony and a free screening of the festival winners, which ended up being great, great fun.

Thanks again to everyone for their support, both locally and beyond! Until next year, keep it creepy. We’re already getting excited about next year!
