Zaragoza Fear Fest, festival de cine fantástico y de terror, nace con la intención de convertirse en un evento socio cultural comprometido con la difusión y promoción del trabajo realizado por realizadores y otros profesionales contemporáneos que quieren abrirse camino en el género fantástico, de terror y ciencia ficción.

Con dicha muestra se pretende además integrar a la ciudad en el circuito, cada vez más amplio y profesionalizado, de festivales de cine dedicados a este género, y establecer relaciones de cooperación con ellos.

La asociación Zaragoza Fear se crea en 2018 por un heterogéneo grupo de personas, aficionadas al cine y profesionales de diferentes campos relacionados con el mismo, interesados en crear esta propuesta cultural de la que en la actualidad carece nuestra ciudad.

El festival nace con el aval de otras muestras de similares características e importante trayectoria, como son la Semana de Cine Fantástico y de Terror de San Sebastián y el Nocturna Madrid Film Festival.

1st AWARD OF THE JURY 200€ AWARD for Best Short Film and a statuette designed by the sculptor Oscar Palacio.
