Dead in Decatur International Film Festival provides an avenue for showcasing short and long form independent films of the horror, sci-fi, fantasy, comic book, and Tokusatsu variety. We are dedicated to inspiring and challenging filmmakers in these genres.

Our 2019 film festival will be held November 1st and 2nd in one of the most notoriously haunted downtown areas in the United States, located in Decatur, Illinois. In addition to screening select films from the over two hundred entries we have received this year, we have scheduled guest speakers, special presentations, activities and more throughout the two days.
