Think you have what it takes to make it as a filmmaker? Hollywood Film Festival, which runs October 21-26, 2009, is now accepting entries in the categories of comedy, drama, and horror features, documentaries, shorts, and music videos.
Specifically with regard to horror, the HFF has formed an alliance with Chris Gore of Film Threat to showcase and celebrate genre cinema during the Hollywood Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy Showcase™, which will feature films from both emerging filmmakers and film masters along with special events and parties. The Showcase will take place during the Hollywood Film Festival on October 24, 25, and 26.
Gore had this to say about his new partnership: “Film festivals have always been very supportive of alternative and fringe indies. Unfortunately, genre films of the sci-fi, fantasy, and horror genre often get left out of festival programs. How will we discover the next Peter Jackson if festivals do not support young filmmakers who create fantastic visions? Teaming with Carlos de Abreu and the Hollywood Film Festival will be a great way to showcase the best new work from indie genre filmmakers. I am ecstatic that Film Threat will be involved in the selection process and helping get this next generation of filmmakers much needed exposure.”
