We’re proud to announce that we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of our South African HorrorFest this year over Halloween season (across 27 October – 7 November).
(With it, the event’s skull-moon logo also got a slight facelift)
We’ve launched this year’s poster image! (attached) – As is customary, it features festival co-organizer (and Terminatryx / Makabra Ensemble vocalist) Sonja. With themes in the past seeing her in vampire, zombie, devil-girl and Bride Of Frankenstein mode, this year she’s witchified by artist Simone Hendricks.
The feature film and short film submissions are currently in the late-entry phase, so if you or an affiliate have a production to submit, there’s still time (see www.horrorfest.info/subform.html or contact us and we’ll take it from there).
The Bloody Parchment literary chapter’s short story competition is open. For all details, head to www.bloodyparchment.blogspot.com
Like in the past, each year we try to add extra or enhanced chapters and events to the HorrorFest, and 2014 is set to include some fun new attractions if all goes to plan.
Some movie title reveals will be sent out soon.
Our indie screening venue partner since the inception of the HorrorFest (the Labia Theatre, Cape Town) remains the venue of choice for Cape Town (with a selection of the programme also set to screen at The Bioscope in Johannesburg).
The Labia had to undergo a costly upgrading of digital projection systems. With this a crowd-funding campaign was struck up to assist.
There are only a few weeks remaining – please head to the link and see if you can spare a few $ to ensure this last bastion of indie cinema remains with us:
Have a killer week! (& do connect, follow, like & share our links below).
