Ontario’s Northern Frights Festival Looking For Film Submissions

For the third year in a row, Northern Frights Festival will take place this October 21st at the Sudbury Theatre Centre in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, Ontario’s premiere horror festival. Promoter David Briggs of Distant Field Productions is once again behind all of the action at the Northern Frights Festival, and he is looking for some of your handmade horror and he can’t wait to see what kind of gruesome, terrifying submissions he gets this year!


From the Northern Frights Festival webpage:

We love horror movies and we love those who make them, so we want to screen your films! We’re looking for all types of horror flicks – monsters, psychos, killer plants, demon dogs, supernatural, super serious, hilarious, dreadful, creepy clowns, possessed machines, ghost horror, found footage… we want them all!!

Anything goes, as long as it’s horror! As for format, we’re focusing this year on shorts, no longer than 30 minutes. However, we MIGHT have time for features. It depends how things go with the venue. We don’t want to have a call just in case! So for now, shorts only. We’re also down with documentaries, animation, claymation, puppetry, wizardry, and we love trailers!!

Submit today, and showcase your work to a new audience of horror fans! Help us celebrate our third Northern Frights Festival!
