We know horror fans are worldwide, but we’re still sometimes surprised by how far-reaching the genre really is. Case in point — the email we recently received about the 6th Annual South African HorrorFest Film Festival. Read on for the details.
From the Press Release:
Since its inception in 2005 the South African HorrorFest Film Festival has been the Halloween event in Africa.
The sixth installment of this exciting week of horrors will run 28 October – 5 November 2010 at The Labia Theatre, Orange Street, Cape Town, ZA. It will include a range of new movies, classics, fan favorites, sneak previews and premieres from around the world as well as several chapters of short films, Halloween dress-up prizes and killer audience giveaways before each movie. In addition there will again be a big horror DVD collection (of several dozen movies) up for grabs for one lucky viewer.
Then of course there is the spectacular live movie soundtrack performance to the screening of a classic silent horror movie by THE MAKABRA ENSEMBLE (created by members of TERMINATRYX, collaborating with members of LARK and violin maestro Matthijs Van Dijk).
The closing date for short film, feature film, and short story entries is late August, and the final festival line-up will be released soon. Here are some of the highlights aside from the films that will be shown:
