It has been the most gruelingS.A. HORRORFESTselection process thus far for this its 7th annual chapter, with a record breaking amount of entries to view and assess.So much so, that this year’sShadow Realm Short Film Collectionwill be bumped up to 4 feature length chapters (totaling around 8 hours and just under 50 extraordinary, scary & innovative short films from 14 countries!!).
Some of the selections areIn Competition, while others are not (added for various reasons asScreening Only, but are still eligible forAudience Choicevotes). Some areSpecial Selections. Updates on these, the movie-makers, as well as the screening times will appear atwww.HORRORFEST.infoand theFacebook Groupin due course.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFh62j-3IpI[/youtube]
The favourite selected short film will win aR12,500 production prize fromVISUAL IMPACTandHDhub(terms & conditions apply). In the past only South African short films were eligible for this prize, but it has now been expanded to include any entry from around the world.
The 20 feature film selections will be revealed towards the end of the week (some already listed at the website).
