The Los Angeles Crime & Horror Film Festival is dedicated to showcasing and celebrating the best of independent crime and horror cinema with live screenings in the heart of Hollywood.

The often under-appreciated genres of crime and horror, and their subgenres, have provided the mediums of film, television and New Media with many of the most memorable and time-tested stories for generations.

Our mission is to shine a spotlight on original independent films in the crime and horror genres and give recognition to visionary filmmakers poised to create the classics of tomorrow.
