Nightstream

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Nightstream was an online film festival, launched in the United States in 2020.[1] Created as a partnership of several horror and fantasy film festivals as a response to the cancellation of their regular events due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, the festival presented a streaming lineup of horror, fantasy and other genre films in October 2020.[2]

Participating festivals were the Boston Underground Film Festival, the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, the North Bend Film Festival, the Overlook Film Festival and Popcorn Frights.[1]

The opening film of the 2020 edition was Aneesh Chaganty's Run.[3] Other films screened included 32 Malasaña Street, Honeydew, My Heart Can't Beat Unless You Tell It To, The Queen of Black Magic and Boys from County Hell.[4] The program also included online parties, a virtual festival lounge, and a talk by American Psycho director Mary Harron.[2]

Organizers have announced that Nightstream will be staged again in October 2021.[5]
