Women in Horror Film Festival Prepares for 2018!

Women in Horror Film Festival Prepares for 2018!

wihff-awardsThe Women in Horror Film Festival is coming back to Peachtree City, GA during October 4-7, 2018. The event will take place at the newly remodeled Crowne Plaza Hotel & Conference Center on their gorgeous wooded property just miles from legendary Pinewood Atlanta Studios and The Walking Dead’s AMC Studios.

The fest will run for 4 days, beginning with an exclusive VIP party on Thursday, October 4, to kick off the event.  Filmmakers, screenwriters, press, and celebrity guests will walk the Dead Carpet and come together in anticipation of 3 days of independent horror films.

This year’s event will see the addition of more workshops and panels geared toward filmmakers and screenwriters including, but not limited to, a live read of the short screenplay finalist scripts, a SFX demo, and more!  The Women in Horror Film Festival will be welcoming vendors, artists and industry pros to share their creations and meet with horror fans. The weekend-long festival will end with an awards ceremony where the winning filmmakers and screenwriters will be recognized for their work with one-of-a-kind Lizzie trophies, crafted by horror sculptor Karl Libecap.

The Women in Horror Film Festival is thrilled to have found shared values and mutual support of the indie film community with two other film festivals for the addition of two very special awards.  The Better Horror Lizzie will be presented by Nightmares Film Festival, currently ranked as the best-reviewed horror film festival on FilmFreeway, and the all-new Narrative Drive Lizzie will be presented by Austin Revolution Film Festival, the best overall reviewed film festival on FilmFreeway. Women in Horror Film Festival is excited to host these additional opportunities to recognize the hard work of independent filmmakers!

Submissions for Women in Horror Film Festival 2018 are open.  Interested filmmakers and screenwriters can submit their work here: https://filmfreeway.com/WIHFF and check out full details at www.WIHFF.com.

Wanna see Friday the 13th ON Friday the 13th…AT THE DRIVE IN?!?!?!

Sometimes living way out in the middle of nowhere has its advantages. We still have that flavor of “Americana” that seems to be disappearing as global culture becomes a much more homogenized experience. For example, we have tons of antique malls and flea markets where you’ll find things that you never knew you wanted. Another… Continue Reading
