​Entries should be submitted through FilmFreeway.


Programming decisions are made by the festival directors and our selection committee. If accepted, we will notify filmmakers by email. After acceptance, the exhibition format will need to be in our office two weeks before the festival. 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.


Feel free to email us if you would like confirmation of entry.
