Festival start: 01 September 2023      Festival end: 09 September 2023

Corrosive is a new festival for those who find joy and entertainment in horror and fantasy films.

Taking place in San Jose, Costa Rica, our goal is to bring followers of dark, gory and fantastic stories closer to films that are not shown regularly at commercial movie theaters in the country. We expect Costa Rican audiences to be eager to devour all those movies during the 5 days of the festival.

But over and above all, Corrosive is the kind of film festival that we would have loved to attend back in our college years, to experience and digest all kinds of unique proposals in the genre.

All short films chosen to be part of the official selection of the Corrosive Film Fest will be participating to obtain the award for Best Short Film and Audience Award.
The award consists of a statuette and recognition by the festival.

The Jury for the Best Short Film category will be in charge of a specialized jury from different branches of the audiovisual industry with sufficient criteria to choose the winning film of the festival.

Feature films that meet the requirements and are selected for the competition may aspire to obtain the statuette for Best Horror Feature Film at the Corrosive Film Fest.

The Jury for the Best Film category will be in charge of a specialized jury from different branches of the audiovisual industry with sufficient criteria to choose the winning film of the festival.

The decisions of the jury for both BEST FEATURE FILM and BEST SHORT FILM will be final.
