HOFF brings spring!

HOFF brings spring!

The biggest genre film festival in the Baltics takes place in Haapsalu from 24-27 April, bringing horror, fantasy, and sci-fi films to Estonia. The Horror and Fantasy Film Festival or HÕFF brings the best, most daring and original films of this genre from the last two years together into one festival. But don’t worry, there will also be a separate programme for cult classics. Twenty-two full-length feature films will be screened, and together with the short films, festival visitors will be able to see over 30 films during the festival.

The opening film is a comedic thriller by American filmmakers Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett entitled You’re Next.

A three person international jury will judge the short films at HÕFF. The best film will win the Silver Méliès in Haapsalu, and a nominee will be selected for the Gold Méliès, which will be awarded later at the Sitges Film Festival in September. 

Visit the HÕFF website for full programme details. Tickets available from Piletilevi.
24-27 April, Haapsalu
