Der er kommet en ny dansk kortfilmsfestival for genrefilm: Night Terrors Film Festival.
Festivalen starter i februar 2016 og søger nu kandidater fra hele verden inden for genrerne horror, thriller, supernatural og absurd. Filmene vil blive udvalgt ved 2 screeninger – i København den 10. februar 2016, mens den anden foregår i Århus 11. februar 2016.
Bag festivalen står skuespiller og filmskaber Kim Sønderholm, som udtaler følgende:
“I’ve felt for a long time that Denmark needed something like this. We have several great film festivals, but most of them is about the more cultural films and not so much the sort of films we’re trying to promote; the more “prima” films if you will. We do have genre festivals but they are mostly concentrated around feature films that has already created a buzz.Our mission is to take small, lesser known, but great genre short films, and do what we can to give them a danish audience, and to be most efficient in doing so we are going to have the event twice, once in each end of the country.We’ve been working on involving Denmarks third biggest city, Odense, aswell – so far without luck but we hope to succeed, although I can’t promise anything at this point.I am personally very much looking forward to this and I hope to see a lot of great films submitted and to meet a lot of genre fans at the events. We’ll be in Copenhagen on February 10 and in Aarhus on February 11 and there will be a great atmosphere, good films, loads of chills, loads of laughs, and a lot of nice people, and we hope to have such a great success to make it an annual event.”
Filmen må max. vare 20 minutter – der er åbent for tilmeldinger nu.
