Black Sunday Film Festival

Are you ready for a brand new film festival that brings you the latest and greatest in independent genre cinema? If so, look no further than the Black Sunday Film Festival, a new screening event that will take place every single month; with series 1 kicking off February 4th 2018.

Each month an all-day event will be held in the heart of London, with filmmakers competing within the Best Short and Feature category of their respected month, with the winners screening once more during our Best Of event in November, competing for the Best Short and Feature 2018 Award.

However, this is a festival created by genre fans for genre fans. And we don’t limit genre cinema to simply horror. Each month we will deliver the best indie horror, sci-fi, dark comedy, edgy drama and everything in between. Sponsored by the legendary Arrow Video, who will be on hand during each event with free giveaways and exclusive trailers for all their latest releases, as well as the amazing London Horror Society, this is an event not to be missed.

Filmmakers, get those films submitted, and join us while we indulge in truly awesome cinema, with the most diehard genre community in the world. We guarantee you’ll never be the same again!


The first Black Sunday Film Festival event takes over the Hen and Chickens Theatre on Sunday 4th February, and what an amazing line up we have for you; including a collection of incredible short films from all over the world, with two amazing feature films closing out Block 1 and 2 of the event.

First up we have two shorts you will not want to miss, The Jitterman from Alex Mathieson and festival hit Crave. Block 1 is then closed out by feature film Dark Resonance; a true indie sci-fi gem that has some serious heart. Created by a crew of only 9, over 15 locations, over only 15 days.

The festival then closes with Block 3, an all British Horror block, with festival darling Devil Town, followed by Peter Mckeirnon’s The Dog Walker and closing out the event is the hugely popular Dogged from Richard Rowntree.

INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish!

Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
