About Buried Alive Film Fest
Come out and see some of the best independent films in the world! This November the Buried Alive Film Fest returns to the fully renovated Plaza Theatre with some of the most disturbing, visually appealing, and scary independent horror films in the world. Out of all of the submissions our judges have narrowed it down to this fine selection of horror gems. See them all on the big screen in a REAL grindhouse theater with THE best popcorn in town!

The modern age of digital film-making has flooded the market with tons of films, one seemingly indistinguishable from the next. The depth and breadth of horror fandom, combined with the rapid growth of independent film-making, have led to an explosion in indie films dealing with the terrifying, macabre, gory, and bizarre.

The Buried Alive Film Fest of Atlanta is your chance to prove your film’s worth. No matter if it’s feature-length or short-form, a slasher or a ghost story, a zombie flick or a horror comedy, a suspenseful thriller or a horror documentary, all films in this exciting and growing genre are welcome. Our staff and judges come from across the local horror community, and with their discerning eyes can truly decide what should remain buried and what should be unearthed.
