Before it appeared, there was another festival about cinema called “The Festival of Imaginary and Fiction cinema”. This one disappeared in 1996. After that, many enthusiastics about fantastic and horror cinema asked for a festival similar to the first one, thus went out the Nocturna Festival, in order to fill the shaft that the “The Festival of Imaginary and Fiction cinema” left.

At the festival, anyone who joins it will enjoy an incredible atmosphere, watching the first release of the last productions of horror, fantasy, thriller, etc. productions, such as “I am a ghost” and “Silent Hill: Revelations”,  and taking into account the presence of famous people related to this topic (actors, film directors…).
