Film4 FrightFest, the UK’s biggest, best and most talked about genre festival, is asking filmmakers from every continent to submit their work for possible inclusion into their main August event.

If you have a short film or feature you think has that X Factor and is something special, different or unique, we’d love to take a look at it. You never know, you could end up on stage at the prestigious Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square introducing it to the world at large.

Film4 FrightFest has an enviable reputation for discovering and bringing bold new talent to the fore.  We’ve launched everything from THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE, THE DEAD and F to the genre careers of Simon Rumley, Tom Shankland, Christopher Smith and Federico Zampaglione.

Don’t forget, FrightFest now has a DVD label, FrightFest Features, and your film might be exactly what we’re looking for in that department too.

So don’t delay, go to to download the submission form, and get the ball rolling.

Alan Jones, FrightFest co-director, says, “It’s amazing how much fine work we get sent every year and how many of those submissions do actually make the grade. So we want to promote this aspect of FrightFest because we know there’s an ever-growing army of horror fantasy filmmakers out there who are just waiting for the right opportunity. And I believe it is our duty to the genre to provide it”.
