Indie Horror Film Festival and Art Show October 30th, 2021 at Senate Theater, 6424 Michigan Ave., Detroit, MI

The only film fest in the world inspired by Rod Serling’s “Night Gallery”, featuring awesome short films, awesome artwork, and an awful Rod Serling impersonator is back! This is our 6th year and we’ve upgraded! This year’s event will be held in one of the few operating movie palaces actually located in Detroit, The Senate Theater, which is home to the mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.

Devil’s Night Gallery is an independent film and art show which takes its name from its two inspirations. The first is “Night Gallery”, a classic, horror anthology television series, hosted by Rod Serling, from the ‘70s. The second is the aggressively independent spirit of the city of Detroit, represented by the ominous “Devil’s Night”.

Like the namesake tv series, Devil’s Night Gallery will feature screenings of short films preceded by an introduction and the reveal of an original piece of art inspired by the film. We will receive film submissions from around the world for this event but they will be narrowed down to 10, from Michigan and beyond, which best represent the experience of the “Night Gallery”. We’ll then select a handful of amazing local artists to create original works of art inspired by those same films.

As mentioned above, each piece will be revealed at the show prior to the screening of the source film. All of which will be hosted by our very own, terrible Rod Serling impersonator. The art will then be hung in the Senate Theater for the duration of the event which will also include a screening of the classic 90’s film, “The Crow” which is set in Detroit on Devil’s Night. Both screenings will be included for a single, to be determined ticket price.

Devil’s Night Gallery is currently still accepting film submissions through August 31st, exclusively through and there are no submission fees for Michigan filmmakers.

This will be a unique evening of macabre art, film, and bad philosophy that makes for a perfect Saturday night event to kick off the Halloween weekend.
