Announcment: The First Fractured Visions Film Festival

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! Ditching the big-budget studio fare that will be projected in every cinema across the globe, the event is set to promote the underdogs of the indie horror scene. Films will be viewed by established filmmaker, sales agents and distribution heads; so who knows where selected films will go from selection in Fractured Visions!

Headed-up by filmmaker Phillip Escott (Cruel Summer, Omega Rising: Remembering Joe D’Amato) 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. As well as screenings, there will feature an epic pub quiz (with prizes galore to be won), an award ceremony, Q&A’s with filmmakers, a horror masterclass 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 – the team are keen 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:

Best Film
Best Director
Best Performance
Best Script
Best Cinematography
Best Editing

Submissions are open on FilmFreeway. Throughout the year, the festival team will be announcing special guest judges, the guest of honour, unveiling the official festival poster and finally the official selection.  You can keep up to date with the festival on Facebook.
