BRITISH HORROR FILM FESTIVAL – Announces Horror Nominations

The British Horror Film Festival has a number of films up for awards!

Bournemouth Pier Theatre is preparing for the first British Horror Film Festival on Saturday 30th October and the official list of nominations has now been announced! Festival Director Stuart Brennan has said that choosing the films up for awards was very difficult: “We‟ve had some incredible entries this year and some superb performances, so the acting categories were particularly hard. Our judges are certainly going to have their work cut out for them.”

A judging panel of industry professionals will decide who the winners are on the day and awards will be presented at a ceremony at the end of the evening.

The British Horror Film Festival
The British Horror Film Festival is run by The Film Festival Guild, a Bournemouth based business that sets up and runs film festivals in the UK. Their aim is to promote independent film-makers and bring awareness to movies that you might not see at your local cinema.
In its first year the festival has started off as a one day event, but is expected to grow each year, increasing the number of screenings and special events on a regular basis.
