Celebrate Sohome Horror Pride Festival July 2nd–July 4th

If there was a “can’t stop, won’t stop” festival award, it would instantly go to Soho Horror Film Festival runner Mitch Harrod for his tireless efforts this year to bring us never-ending horror entertainment. The festival, held earlier this year, had some fantastic independent films attached throughout its twelve-week run. The festival returned for one final week in May to hand out awards and do a final screening with the top-prize winning films: An Ideal Host and short Under the Lather (Sous la Mousse). Now, only a month since that event, the festival is setting up for its Sohome Horror Pride Film Festival, extending Pride for one more weekend because horror voices and stories this unique cannot be contained to only one month. 

This weekend will be chock-full of events taking place on the Soho Horror Festival’s Facebook page, and the best part is that all you have to do to attend any of them is like the festival page on Facebook. That’s right. The festival is free! Once you’re on the Facebook page, you’ll have access to a weekend filled with ten horror films like the Lynchian mind warp Playdurizm and festival favorite Death Drop Gorgeous in its European premiere. Special events taking place include In the Key of Fear, an evening of live music with horror composer Andrew Scott Bell (DeathcemberWitness Infection), and Cis-tem Error, a panel discussion on trans representation in horror. Hex the Patriarchy, a live panel discussion by Ghouls Magazine celebrating 25 years of The Craft, includes Horror Obsessive’s own Alix Turner. Plus, there will be live podcasts, an afterparty, and plenty of short films, too. The full schedule is listed below, but events are subject to change, so make sure you check with the festival’s Facebook page during the event.

Sohome Horror Pride schedule

Personally, Soho Horror Fest 2021 was one of the most fun and inclusive festivals I’ve ever participated in. The atmosphere created is one of family and community, and I’m almost certain anyone interested in attending will have a spectacular time, whether it be a single film or every event. Plus, Sohome Horror Pride Festival is free to attend and takes place virtually in your own home, making it even easier to take part in.

Because they know times are hard for many people, the festival continues to bring amazing entertainment into our homes at no cost. Sohome Horror Pride Film Festival is operating solely on viewer support donations and entirely without sponsors. So, if you like what you see, I’d strongly encourage you to support them so we can all indulge in future events.

The Sohome Horror Pride Festival will take place July 2–July 4.
