Rock Horror in Rio Film Festival

The Rock Horror in Rio Film Festival is more than a film screener, it’s an event that unites the best of the horror, thriller, and fantasy films with rock & roll in a big party for moviegoers who love music, and cinema.

Our huge halloween themed pajama party will take place in one of the most interesting and hip locations of our huge Brazil, the wonderful city of Rio and the new cinema pole of Niterói.

Rio de Janeiro has a bohemian, cosmopolitan and underground atmosphere to receive our international guests, and the Reserva Cultural Niteroi, featuring the Guanabara Bay as its backdrop, both, perfect locations for a horror movie film festival that culminates with a rock lounge every night, and a party with live rock bands at the opening and the closing night event where we will award the best longs and shorts in competition.

Our festival selected the best thrillers from various countries like: Andorra, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Peru, United Kingdom, United States, South Korea, Spain and Sweden. It's 35 films inedit in Brazil in 5 days!

Prepare your heart for scarily exciting nights filled with the best of international thrillers, rock & roll, drinks in test tubes, and lots of purple popcorn.
