Las VegasBLACKLIST Las Vegas, Nevada Thursday, Oct. 29th

The Blacklist Art & Film Festival; champions of gore and advocates of fearless creativity, head out on an experimental road trip to bring Sin City a special Halloween inspired event of absolute horror. Exercise your demons through a ruthless barrage of award winning film atrocities, and brilliant art work all while supporting emerging artists and filmmakers both locally and worldwide. This unique event will be held at:


The Griffin Bar & Lounge - 511 Fremont St. Las Vegas, NV. 89101
Thursday, Oct. 29th
. Doors to the event will open at 7pm. Horror Film Showcase will screen at 7pm, 10:30pm and again at 12:00am midnight. Each screening will cost $5 and has a runtime of 75min.


This special event will consist of:

Art Showcase – On display will be a series of imaginative and thought provoking paintings, photographs, sketches and other mixed media from local Las Vegas talent as well as our special guest Featured Artists. Live painting will be included. The art showcase is free of charge from 8:30pm to 10:15pm

Horror Film Showcase – The main attraction of the night, an exclusive collection of short, award winning horror films from all over the world (Spain, Australia, Canada, USA). These visceral creations are raw and original in content, a far and refreshing cry from that of mainstream Hollywood. Not for the faint of heart, and a must for any horror fan. The films will be projected in high quality on a large screen and be accompanied by state of the art sound. Audience members will select by vote, the best film of the night.
