The Port of Fear Film Festival celebrates everything horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and thriller. We work to bring awareness to the burgeoning Midwest film industry, inviting new artists and audiences to come and explore downtown Kenosha, WI. Our aim is to support filmmakers and artists here in Wisconsin, and the greater film and arts community across the Midwest.
We believe the arts are crucial to help us express oneself and what our communities represent. Our 48 Hour student challenge “5 MINUTE Horrors” helps foster creative expression and build teamwork skills. These films are featured at the festival, free to the community to enjoy. This is also an excellent opportunity for students to meet and interact with local filmmakers, building a stronger connection with the next generation of filmmakers and artists in Southeastern Wisconsin.
Our mission is to bring our community together through the arts. By working with artists, filmmakers, writers, and students, we can engender a new passion for artistic expression right here in Kenosha, WI. All it takes is a good story, the right minds (and in our case, a good scare), and we can change our community for the better.
