Founded by Eric Ford Holevinski in 2016, Hayride Films started from the belief that watching a movie should feel like hanging out with your friends. It should be a good time. In partnership with Kris Maxx of Playtime Aint Over Productions, we’ll be showcasing independent visionaries striving to create content that breaks the rules. Whether it be horror, comedy, romance… we’re here to take you on a one-of-a-kind trip.
