OVERLOOK FILM FESTIVAL 2018 NEW ORLEANS
THE OVERLOOK FILM FESTIVAL is a celebration of all things horror held in most haunted city in the America, New Orleans.
On its sophomore year, the Overlook Film Festival kicks in with a bunch of newly picked horror films and curated unique experiences that will sure get horror fans either pumped or freaked out. Not only does the festival celebrate horror films, but also it offers some unique immersive and virtual experiences that will have the attendees question the reality of horror beyond screen.
The year's festival theme is the celebration of the contrasts between two opposing but coexisting forces in horror: evil and good, killer and victim, the dead and the living, darkness and light, black and white. Making use of the "haunted house" as the visual theme, the boundary between horror in screen and physical existence is blurred.
The main colors used are red with peripheral color bright green. This contrasting combination creates somewhat illusory and dreamy tone. For the festival, in regard to the festival's theme of contrast, red signifies the "dread" and the less frequent color green presents the glimmer of "safety and survival"—a typically rare occurrence in horror film.
