Panic Fest Announces Film and Event Programming for “Tricks & Treats” Halloween Festival

Trick or Treaters. Candy binging. Horror marathons. Pumpkin carving. Costume contests.

Even though this Halloween turned out to be more gnarly than Regan projectile vomiting green pea soup – that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the best time of the year together! Panic Fest won’t let Halloween die! Panic Fest Presents: TRICKS AND TREATS, a special virtual Halloween celebration that runs October 30th thru November 1st.

The three day event features films, short film blocks and live events. Best of all, you, the horror community get to participate with each other throughout the weekend.

We are excited to continue our partnership with IFC Films and IFC Midnight bringing you three brand new horror films; Kindred, Hunter Hunter and The Vigil. The line-up of feature films includes 13 films and over 25 shorts for you to sink your teeth into.

In addition to the films, we have curated a selection of special programming including a horror themed debate between podcasts Nightmare Junkhead and FrightDay, Forever Bogus hour long nostalgic Halloween special, The Final Girls: A Conversation with Women in Horror hosted by Fangoria, and so much more.

Finally, it isn’t Halloween without some games is it? We are hosting live trivia, bingo, Twitch game streams, happy hours, and more throughout the weekend. 

So, grab your costume and bowl of candy and join us for a jam packed weekend celebrating our favorite time of year. Tickets are now on sale and we just announced our full programming for films and events listed below!
