I was recently sent some updates from Louisville, Kentucky's very own horror film festival, The Fright Night Film Fest, which will be August 15-17 this year. What you'll find below is from their press release that's geared towards the filmmakers...
Fright Night Film Fest is the largest genre show in the Mid South. Our festival has risen to prominence and has attracted worldwide attention. Our films come from Spain, Sweden,Canada, England, LA, New York and of course all over the Country. Not only are we a Film Festival and Convention, we are an industry show providing educational forums for actors, producers, investors, directors and others wanting to break into the industry. We support the independent community by providing a forum for their film and a voice of support to help them get distribution. As a direct result of our show we have helped launch the careers many filmmakers.
This year the Kentucky Arts Center will be hosting our “Silver Scream Awards” in Whitney Hall where we will be expecting over 2000 people to attend to walk the Red Carpet. This will be the venue for celebrities, filmmakers, families, press and the fan's to enjoy a great night honoring those who work so hard for their craft.
You filmmakers are not going to want to miss this opportunity to get your film in competition. We are still accepting submissions until July 24th, 2008.
Combined with the Film Festival is the Horror Convention with over 32,000 sq. feet of vendor space. We are also bringing in over 30 Celebrities…. Angus Scrimm, Mick Foley, a 30th Anniversary Reunion with the “Halloween Cast”, Adams Family Reunion, just to name a few.
This year we are working heavily with the Make-A-Wish foundation to provide one child with a wish. You are not going to want to miss the 2008 Fright Night Film Fest.
We'll update their entry in our horror film festivals section and be sure to keep you posted on any updates that they may have... for more information on the festival, you can go check out their website here.
