To purchase Boise Fright Film Festival Passes:

h48 is the horror version of i48. Just like i48, but without the PG requirement. h48 is held each year in October as part of the Idaho Horror Film Festival, with a limited number of teams that can participate. Teams are given a horror genre, line, and prop that they must use in the 4-6 minute film.

Due to the R-rated nature of the h48 films, we don’t publish those online. Sorry.
