Dedfest '12 - October 6th in Victoria, BC

It MUST be October...  because I'm getting lots of requests to promote horror film fests.  I'm more than happy to give time to all of them, too!  I'm posting info on this one now, as the fest is actually next week.  It's not one you can enter, but they are screening some cool flicks.  I haven't actually seen "V/H/S" yet, but I hear it's great and I'd love to check out "Famine"... if you're in the Victoria, BC area -- check this out.  If you're not, try to check out "Famine" and "V/H/S" wherever you can!        

Organizer Ira Hunter of Absolute Underground, Burning Moon Videos and Zombie Walk Victoria are pleased to announce the return of Dedfest Victoria! This is a film festival running into its second season and the schedule for the film festival is hosted below:
