The Dark Carnival Film Festival (previously presented at IU Cinema as the Diabolique International Film Festival) started in Bloomington in 2007. Over the last nine years, it has screened more than 400 films from over a dozen countries and hosted visiting filmmakers from around the world. Throughout its history, Dark Carnival has gained a reputation as a festival that truly values independent genre films and the people who make them. As a result, the festival has been recognized by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the “Top 25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee,” and one of the “13 Horror Film Festivals to Die For.”
