The Olympia Film Society presents:
May 19, 2018
Showcasing local freaky flicks from filmmakers located in the Pacific Northwest, the 1st Annual Northwest Horrorfest celebrates the coldhearted macabre deep in the heart of the evergreen soul. Films will be screened during the 1st Annual Northwest Horrorfest at the Capitol Theater May 19, 2018.
Horror helps us delve into the darker parts of our psyches, where the human spirit revels in the unseen powers of the macabre. A tool for processing evolutionary fears, societal anxieties, and grief, the horrific genre can be just a powerful tool of healing as any other narrative form. Plus, it also can be a lot of fun that brings communities together!
