The
17th Annual South African HORRORFEST
Hal
loween Season 2021


28 October - 7 November


The South African HORRORFEST is the longest running and only event of its kind in the country (if not the continent)
featuring new, classic and rare movies, pre-release screenings, dark literature, live silent film soundtrack performance,
Halloween dress-up, give-aways and more.
Due to the global pandemic situation, live elements will be adapted and the bulk of the festival will move on-line...

...but, a limited selection of movies will screen at The Labia Theatre, keeping the theatre experience spirit alive!
The upside of the on-line side is that the South African Horrorfest will now reach beyond Cape Town
for those who'd been wanting to attend for years!
The cinema page will be updated
HERE

We will have info soon on whether the new chapter - The Global Horrorfest (with a portion of the virtual line-up accessible by the rest of the world)
will again be included this year.

South African HorrorFest


ABOUT THE SOUTH AFRICAN HORRORFEST
In 2004 Paul Blom and Sonja Ruppersberg decided to rectify the issue of the absence of a dedicated Horror event in South Africa.
The first S.A. HorrorFest (then also known as the Horror Festacular) launched in 2005.
Besides being a Horror / Chiller / Thriller film festival (screening feature films and short films from around the world),
from the start it made a point of expanding into a broad Halloween event by incorporating
new live soundtrack performances to classic silent films by The Makabra Ensemble,
the Bloody Parchment literary chapter, Halloween dress-up competition, a night market and more.
