The Insect Fear Film Festival!
Scaring the general public with horrific films and horrific filmmaking since 1984

Thank you all for making the 33rd Annual Insect Fear Film Festival - Exploding Arthropods - an amazing event! Special thanks to Ryan Gillis, director of Palm Rot, for helping us introduce the films. Check out some photos of the event in the Photos tab.

IFFF is held every year in February in Foellinger Auditorium (UIUC Campus). Admission is free. In addition to the films, there will be the traditional IFFF activities, including face painting and the insect petting zoo.

Find more information about the 33rd IFFF on Facebook or Twitter. #IFFF33

IFFF Art Contest:

For many years, we have held an Insect Art Contest in conjunction with the Insect Fear Film Festival. The art contest is organized and presented by graduate students and judged by volunteers from campus and the community, but participation by teachers and students truly makes the art contest a success. In the past, we have solicited entries from art teachers in area schools, but we think that participation in the Insect Art Contest can extend beyond art classes. Any student in the community is welcome to enter.
