Haapsalu Horror & Fantasy Film Festival


The Haapsalu Horror & Fantasy Film Festival (HOFF) is the “one and only stop” for the genre hungry in the Baltics. Held in the unique setting of the city of Haapsalu - once a renown summer retreat of the Russian Czars, now a picturesque town, a celebrated spa for its legendary mud treatment and the home of an infamous Baltic ghost - the White Lady, haunting the medieval castle on the the western coast.

HOFF is organized by the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (www.poff.ee), the largest art house festival in the region together with Haapsalu Culture Center and the City of Haapsalu. The festival’s unique reputation is derived from the combination of “no limits - no ratings” programming, unforgettable special events and it’s spectacular location - an ex Soviet culture center with two cinemas restored to its red velvet glory.

Come and surrender yourself to three days full of fantastic films, sumptuous spa and exhilarating events - as HOFF and Estonians never sleep!
