Dundead Horror Film Festival 2024

Thu 16 - Sun 19 May

Dundee's dedicated horror film festival returns for its twelfth edition. 

We've got a bone-chilling line-up for you at Dundead 2024, including a chilling selection of Scottish premieres and previews, plus a celebration of slasher films with some special anniversary screenings. 

Join us from Thu 16 May, when we'll be kicking things off with our traditional Dundead Film Quiz, through to Sun 19 May for a long weekend full of brand new scares and terrifying vintage treats. And join us in Jute Cafe Bar after our screening of Scream on Sat 18 May, where a DJ will be playing to keep the festival atmosphere going.

Get your hands on a Full or Half Pass, depending on how brave you are. Each pass comes with some Dundead merch featuring our festival logo, which this year has been designed by Abertay University student Liam Doyle. There are special pass prices for DCA Members and 18-25 Members too.
