Damnationland presents genre-defying original works from Maine filmmakers that redefine the classic thriller and horror categories. For nearly a decade, Damnationland programs have featured world premieres of short films produced in Maine by Mainers especially for the Halloween season. These are dark, surreal, and fantastic pieces, and they offer film fans an excellent sampling of the talent producing independent film in Maine today.
The premiere for each year’s Damnationland program always takes place during the month of October, at the State Theatre in Portland, Maine. After that, satellite screenings of the films are booked throughout the state, at various film festivals and horror conventions, and at venues around the globe. Check out our Screenings page for all the details!
