​Entries can only be submitted via Withoutabox’s Secure Online Screener or another online source, such as vimeo. Email us with questions.


Programming decisions are made by the festival directors and our selection committee. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. After acceptance, the presentational format will need to be in our office two weeks before the festival. Be sure to indicate aspect ratio of your film/video as well as any other special screening/presentation information we might need to know. We do not pay rental fees for submitted work that is programmed.


​Although the art of filmmaking is not competitive, AHFF does give accolades to films selected as best in various categories: Best Feature and Short, Best Director, Best Horror Comedy, Best Sci-Fi, Best Thriller, and many more. Visit the Awards Page.


Cost of shipping exhibition prints to the festival is the responsibility of the entrant. Exhibition copies must be sent to the festival prepaid. The festival can not accept responsibility for damage or loss of materials while in transit. Please use as little packaging material as possible to cut down on trash.


Due to the large number of materials received, videos will not be returned.


Feel free to email us if you would like confirmation of entry. Or, check your Withoutabox account page.
