​For starters, the word “Macabre” is pronounced: Ma-Cob. The “re” is hardly ever heard. What does it mean?

Although it is an adjective meaning: disturbing and horrifying because of involvement with or depiction of death and injury, the Macabre Faire Film Festival with a lighter touch in the sense that, not all of the films screened have been a gorefest. This festival showcases films that can tap into our fears through what you don’t see or hear. Films that fall in the “Dark Drama, Mystery, Suspense, Thriller and Dark Comedy” can also touch upon some elements of fear/horror. Of course, let’s not forget those fantasy films or comedies with their horror twists.

All submitted films are pre-screened by select judges to ensure the films have followed guidelines and are an overall fit for the festival. Then the films are passed on to another set of judges consisting of filmmakers, film critics, and or seasoned actors to identify the Official Selections. Once these selections have been identified there is an additional judging process in collaboration with the original pre-screening judges to identify the different category nominees.

The Macabre Faire events and Film Festival have a reputation for being a very friendly environment with a wonderful celebratory ambiance within an intimately sized space.
