We’re excited to announce that we have opened up Haunted Oaks to submissions from across the country!

As a locally-proud Pittsburgh film festival, Haunted Oaks is especially interested in horror films produced in Pennsylvania, Ohio, or West Virginia (i.e. “The Greater Pittsburgh area”). However, in the interest of expanding our reach and increasing the pool of available entries, we are now accepting short horror film submissions from any filmmaker who is willing and able to attend the festival event on October 1st in Oakmont, PA. By inviting out-of-town directors to join this Pittsburgh regional event, we hope to encourage a creative exchange among horror filmmakers across the country that is still focused on highlighting Pittsburgh filmmakers

Event Details on Facebook. 

So, even if you’re not from our neck of the woods, you can still be a part of Pittsburgh’s premier horror film festival! Just grab a couple of friends and plan a road trip to Pittsburgh for October 1st. You’ve got less than noting to lose; go ahead and submit your short horror film!
