International Filmfest of entertaining, fantastic and arthouse free genre cinema.

We are a young team of enthusiastic film fans, long familiar with the scene. The festival director, David Ghane, an avid movie collector, has been visiting 7 to 13 film festivals a year since 2004, sometimes volunteering there, and has himself appeared in horror movies.

​We offer films a platform that have it difficult in Germany due to their particular nature or scope. Many festivals are drifting more and more into the Arthouse or Drama track. People who are looking for entertaining, smaller, more special Independent films or even big budget productions from far away, will find this at the Obscura Filmfest.

It started as a festival for offbeat, trashy, raunchy Underground Grindhouse cinema and developed into a Genre filmfest that now also includes films with a high production value. At every Obscura Filmfest we present dozens of films that represent the different facets of fantastic and entertaining cinema. From the small and mean horror films to asian battle epics, there is something for everyone, just no boredom.

Highlights of past festival editions include the german premieres of the argentinian Fantasy Sci Fi Cyberpunk Actionfilm "Daemonium", the Backwoods films "What the Waters Left Behind", "Drifter" and "Escape from Cannibal Farm" as well as the international premiere of another Genre Hybrid "Chicago Rot", which is also a great mashup of Fantasy, Sci Fi, Cyberpunk, Gore and Crime.
Another Highlight was the crazy japanese Splatterfest "Kodoku - Meatball Machine" which had an extensive festival history including the biggest festivals of its kind. Hanover had the honour to present the german premiere of "Trauma", an ultra violent Exploitationfilm from Chile. Also in Hanover, the korean 16 Million Euro Battle epic "The Great Battle".
