The unrivaled horror film festival in Greece is back!
Live the experience!
Horrorant Film Festival “FRIGHT NIGHTS”, one of the fastest up and coming genre film festivals in Europe, just completed its fifth run with great success, giving the Greek audience a full week packed with suspense, excitement, and of course, pure entertaining horror.
Twenty-five feature films from 14 countries were screened in Athens in the International Competition section and competed for the Horrorant awards, making the judges’ mission extremely difficult.
The award winners were announced last Thursday, and the Taiwanese teen horror Mon Mon Mon Monsters was chosen for the Horrorant Best Film award. Marcelo Schapces won the Horrorant Best Director award for Necronomicon, while Arend Remmers took the Horrorant Best Screenplay award for Snowflake. No movie managed to win more than one award, which displays that the competition was really tough.
