Salem Horror Fest has announced the return of its annual exploration of social themes in horror with a city-wide program of premieres, double features, speakers, guests, live podcasts and parties in the Halloween capital of the world this October 4 – 14, 2018.
Following its 2017 debut, Salem Horror Fest seeks to find the most compelling horror shorts from around the globe with disturbing stories that reveal something about our societal fears. The best shorts curated by jury will be featured as part of a two-hour showcase.
“What good is having a voice if you can’t scream? That’s why we created this platform. Horror is one of the most effective ways to help process the cultural anxieties many of us feeling right now,” said festival director Kevin Lynch.
Filmmakers interested in submitting their horror short can visit salemhorror.com/submit to be considered. Deadline is July 16, 2018.
