South African HORRORFEST Film Festival
The final festival line-up will be released soon.
The new literary leg added in 2009 with the Lounge Of Horror fiction readings has been expanded in 2010 to include Bloody Parchment's short story competition: http://www.shadowrealminc.com/bloodyparchment/index.htm
Closing date for short film-, feature film-, and short story entries is late-August! (extension by request - see website for full info http://www.HORRORFEST.info) - naturally Horror elements are essential, and with the short films anything goes, from narrative and experimental to music videos, animation and everything in between.
Another added feature comes in the shape of a dark art & photography exhibition which is in the works.
With the S.A. HORRORFEST nurturing South African moviemaking (and encouraging its own fresh identity) in tandem with local short film prize sponsors VISUAL IMPACT and HD HUB, this is now further transforming to include fiction writers, artists and photographers.
The limited edition 2009 HorrorFest / Provoyeur Wine range was very well received and something similar will be created for 2010.
While last year's special guest (American Werewolf In London's John Landis) couldn't make it, we are looking into bringing a prominent figure in Horror movies to the event. Fingers crossed.
