1st ANNUAL FRACTURED VISIONS FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES 2018 DATES!
Having established itself as the premiere cult cinematic event in Cardiff, Fractured Visions is now expanding and are pleased to announce the launch of the Fractured Visions Film Festival!
Over the weekend of the 29th and 30th of September 2018 Fractured Visions will be bringing the best in independent horror to the BIG screen for a weekend filled with bloodshed, scares, laughs and downright terror! We aren’t interested in the big-budget studio fare that will be projected in every cinema across the globe, we want to promote the underdogs and we want to promote the future of the genre.
Of course, it’s impossible to acknowledge the future without paying respect to the past, and as such, we will be inviting a true genre legend to the festival and will be programming two classics from the genre’s glorious history. We will also be holding a masterclass with our genre icon that will be as illuminating for the film fans as it will the filmmakers in attendance.
Headed-up by filmmaker Phillip Escott (Cruel Summer) and film academic Mikel J. Koven (La Dolce Morte: Vernacular Cinema and the Italian Giallo Film), the Fractured Visions Film Festival promises to be an event for both film lovers and filmmakers. We’ll be holding an epic pub quiz (with prizes galore to be won), an award ceremony, Q&A’s with filmmakers and generally having a great time.
Submissions are now open, so if you’ve created a gut-crunching feature, a throat-ripping short or an eye-opening documentary that will set the horror world on fire – we want to see it! The festival will be taking place at Tramshed Cinema, where everyone will be welcome to kick back, grab a beer and enjoy the films in luxury; thanks to Tramshed’s beautiful seating (courtesy of British airlines!).
The festival will be offering awards in the following for both features and shorts:
Early Bird Deadline: April 30th, 2018
Regular Deadline: May 31st, 2018
Late Deadline: July 31st, 2018
Extended Deadline: August 10th, 2018
Submissions will be accepted directly through our partners at Film Freeway: www.FilmFreeway.com/FracturedVisionsFilmFestival
Throughout the year we will be announcing special guest judges, our guest of honour, unveiling the official festival poster and finally our official selection.
The Fractured Visions Film Festival promises to be a 2018 highlight in the calendars of horror fans across the south of Wales and beyond!
