We are pleased to announce the 1st Annual "Terror In The Bay" Horror Film Festival! Starting in October 2017, we will be showcasing a wide range of horror/mystery/thriller films and trailers from across the world!


Our festival is built by filmmakers for filmmakers, and we know the hard work and dedication it takes to make a film of any genre and length. Film festival submission fees can add up very quickly, so we kept our entry fees low, and if your film is selected to play at our festival, it will automatically be considered for individual award nominations! 

We are accepting films of any budget, length, and production value. Our judges treat every film equally, and will be graded honestly and fairly!

This 3-day event will take place at the historic Paramount Theatre, which has recently changed it's name to MapleTops Paramount Entertainment Theatre, located in the downtown core of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.

Paramount Theatre (1948)


The downtown core and entertainment industry in Thunder Bay has been growing steadily over the past several years, and Mapletops Paramount Theatre is one of the oldest buildings in the city. It has been newly renovated inside, has a full concession stand and hosts several local plays and musicals. The theatre seats 230 people.
