The Overlook Film Festival, a 'four-day celebration of horror and immersive experiences," will be held in the French Quarter April 19-22, 2018. The festival will be centered on the Bourbon Orleans Hotel and most screenings will be held at the Canal Place 9 theater.
Overlook debuted in 2017 in Mount Hood, Oregon, and featured numerous premieres including It Comes at Night, a live radio play and a festival-encompassing immersive game. The festival is currently accepting submissions of short films and selling early-bird passes. More information is here.
