The Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival, Orange County, California’s ONLY horror film festival is coming back in September 2013! The fest is calling out to all horror filmmakers to submit their short or feature film through their web site, www.EverybodyDiesFilmFest.com.
“The films we screened at our 2012 festival were incredible” says EDHFF co-founder Sara Parrell. “We can’t wait to see what the independent horror filmmakers of the world have in store for us in 2013!”
Priding themselves on insuring that the filmmakers are the focus, directors from the festival’s previous years have had very kind things to say about their experience with the Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival.
Travis Greene, director of the short film DEER HEAD VALLEY, says ““Orange County’s Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival keeps horror and the macabre alive in sunny Southern California. Festival directors Jeff Smith and Sara Parrell couldn’t be more accommodating to the filmmakers and the fans with brilliant programming, red carpet surprises and their cozy and congenial after parties. With a perfect blend of theme and tone, pairing like-minded short films with their feature film counterparts and Jeff Smith’s vast knowledge of the genre, evident in his Q&A’s, one gets a real sense that this is a horror film festival put on by horror filmmakers. DEER HEAD VALLEY, a film in which I directed, made its rounds on the horror festival circuit in 2012 and EDHFF stood out, by far, as one of the best up and coming festivals.”
Katie Downer, director of ORANGE COUNTY HILL KILLERS, says “I’m so thankful for Everybody Dies. Not only were they super friendly and inviting, they gave me a great opportunity. The press my film got from the fest is unmatched and it’s not everyday that a first time filmmaker gets their very own Q&A. Everybody Dies is truly a festival for the filmmakers. I’ll never forget my experience and I hope I have the opportunity to submit many more films!”
And according to Caleb McKenney, director of SLASH, “If you’re fortunate enough to be selected for the Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival, your film is going to find a home amongst some of the best Independent Horror Films being made today. A home presided over by two of the nicest deranged maniacs I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.”
The festival is now looking for more filmmakers to showcase in Orange County this September! Details can be found at http://www.EverybodyDiesFilmFest.com !
