Nightmare on Film Street was among the crowd of eager fans, industry, and filmmakers to descend on New Orleans, Louisiana for the The 2018 Overlook Film Festival – an insane weekend of genre films, parties and immersive events.
The Overlook Film Festival ran from April 19th to 22nd, staking headquarters in what is often toted as ‘the most haunted hotel in North America’, The Bourbon Orleans Hotel. The fest debuted 23 feature films, including world premieres like Darren Lynn Bousman’s St. Agatha, and Hans Stjernswärd’s The Farm. Audiences were also treated to screenings of Ari Aster’s eagerly anticipated debut Hereditary, Leigh Whannell’s futuristic genre-bender Upgrade, desktop thriller Unfriended: Dark Web, and gory crowd-pleaser Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, among others.
Now that the festival has drawn to a close and we’ve all reluctantly returned to our regular everyday life, The Overlook Film Festival has proudly announced the Audience and Juried Award winners, below.
