Buried Alive 2018: The Horror Film Festival Rises Once Again in Atlanta

The Buried Alive Film Festival runs November 14–18th

Film lovers are pretty spoiled for choice these day with so much content available; however, there is nothing quite like catching a film at a festival screening. Surrounded by people, film fans, and filmmakers alike, brimming with enthusiasm for the genre of choice, it makes for a hell of an atmosphere that adds to the impact and entertainment value. While many festivals can seem out of reach geographically or financially, there are some plucky local upstarts out there doing their best to offer a more intimate experience. Such it is with Atlanta’s Buried Alive Film Fest, which is back for its 13th year and kicks off later this week.

Over 5 days attendees will see 7 features, including the opening night film The God Inside My Ear, dance battle sequel The FP2, and even international fare such as Spain’s Framed, and Japan’s Violence Voyager. Filling out the program is an admirable number of shorts and special events, including a live Samahda soundtrack screening of 1920’s The Golem. The fest also sees the return of Todd Sheets with his latest film, Clownado. Clowns are scarier than sharks y’know. Beyond film, there’s even more going on including a performance by Altanta’s “Illegitimate Burlesque” troupe, Blast-Off Burlesque, and the third annual Sinema Challenge where filmmakers have to come up with a movie using Cards Against Humanity for inspiration.

You can check out the full schedule here, and details on tickets are below. So if you’re in Atlanta later this week and looking to be entertained while supporting the film community, check it out!

Tickets are $12 for each screening block of the festival, $10 for the Sinema Challenge screenings, and $120 for a full festival pass (an over $80 discount). You can purchase tickets at FilmFreeway by clicking here or visiting filmfreeway.com/BuriedAliveFilmFestival/tickets.
