On Thursday April 8th, the Death’s Parade Film Fest will present a number of independent horror shorts live on their Grim and Bloody channel on Youtube.
During the broadcast filmmakers representing the shorts will stop by to discuss their work and possibly field questions from the audience. This is a free show for everyone!
The Youtube theater shows which the festival puts on are incredibly fun to produce, and provide filmmakers a visual platform to showcase their work. It’s not uncommon for directors to return with the rest of the cast and crew for a second show, and a deeper dive into their work. The live screening event is born from those efforts. This will be the festival’s first opportunity since their inaugural run in 2019 to connect with an audience in real-time, and that is still the best way to experience horror. If we can’t sit in a musty theater together yet, then this is the next best thing. Live events on Youtube give viewers the chance to ask questions which the hosts – and guest filmmakers – will have the chance to answer.
And speaking of filmmakers – want to be part of the show? The Death’s Parade Film Fest is now looking for horror and suspense films that are less than 15 minutes in length that weave a compelling story. They prefer English speaking films, or with English subtitles. The work must be completed and polished, but can be restricted to general audiences (meaning it’s not public facing yet).
Films will be screen shared with the hosts via Zoom, and streamed through the festival’s Youtube channel. Selected films will be set to private, then deleted after screening. Submissions are free. Send the fest as many films as you would like to email@example.com – use the subject line Screening Party and provide a downloadable link to the film. Selectees will be notified March 18th. No extreme violence or gratuitous nudity please.
