“2019 has been a banner year, from a ‘Legend of Sleepy Hollow’ stage musical to the inaugural SLEEPY HOLLOW INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL.” —THE NEW YORK TIMES"

"A line up worthy of the Sleepy Hollow name!" -- YAHOO ENTERTAINMENT

THE FIRST ANNUAL SLEEPY HOLLOW International Film Festival (SHIFF) debuted in October 2019 and was an official partner in the Villages of Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown, NY’s Bicentennial celebration of Washington Irving’s immortal story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." SHIFF '19 unveiled four days of memorable programming at the historic Tarrytown Music Hall and Warner Library, thrilling attendees with feature film premieres, live stage events, special guest panels and discussions and film and screenplay competitions. Entertainment entities such as Disney, Universal Pictures and others participated in SHIFF’s launch, presenting special events and screenings, and they, along with other noteworthies will be participating in 2020 as well!

SHIFF 2020 continues its celebration of outstanding genre cinema in the very cradle of the American Supernatural during the height of the Halloween Season, taking place in Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown, NY, on October 15-18, 2020, and is now accepting film and script submissions!

Once again, exciting premiere feature films and groundbreaking new films in competition will screen alongside thrilling retrospectives, live events and panels. Venues include the historic Tarrytown Music Hall, the Warner Library and others to be announced.

2020's advisory board, selection committees and jury will include film and literary professionals with industry experience who will program and award new films of quality, of all genres, and that touch upon, relate to or simply explore the otherworldly or unknown.

SHIFF 2019's offerings included U.S. and regional premieres of THE WRETCHED, PHANTOM OF WINNIPEG and MAKING APES as well as a special advance screening of acclaimed director Peter Strickland’s IN FABRIC and more! Renowned actor Jeffrey Combs brought down the house with his live-on-stage one man Edgar Allan Poe show NEVERMORE, and Dana Gould, Bobcat Goldthwait, John Hodgman and an all-star comedy cast killed with a live stage reading of PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE! We can't wait to unleash what is in store for 2020 -- and we're excited to make this year's film and script submission selections the backbone of the experience!

Special lifetime awards are bestowed upon artists whose influential work recalls the spirit of Irving's creativity. SHIFF '19 honored legendary actor/songwriter/performer Paul Williams (PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE) with its first Washington Irving Legend Award and iconic producer Edward R.
