Sunday’s Will Never Be The Same Again With New London Based Black Sunday Film Festival
Prepare yourself for a brand new film festival, bringing the latest and greatest in independent genre cinema. Black Sunday Film Festival is a newly established film festival in the heart of London that will start screening the most sought after short and feature films every last Sunday of every month. The exciting festival will launch on Sunday 28th January 2018, and you could have the chance for your film to screen at what will be the most exclusive film festival of the year.
Every last Sunday of every month, Black Sunday Film Festival will kick off from noon until 10pm at the Hen and Chickens Theatre in North London. The event will screen the best in independent genre cinema, including both shorts and features, which aim to deliver anything from horror to sci-fi to dark comedy and everything in between. Films featured at the event will be in the running to win Best Short or Best Feature of their respected month, with the winners screening at the November Best Of event and will be put into the Best Short and Feature of 2018 Award.
The film festival has been set up by filmmaker Scott Lyus (best know for his short horror Silently Within Your Shadow) who said “The Black Sunday Film Festival has been created to help showcase as many genre films as possible. Rather then running for a few days once a year and showing a handful of shorts and features, I wanted to give filmmakers the greatest opportunity to have their films screened in front of an audience all year long.”
Black Sunday Film Festival will be co-hosted and judged by James Wren, who is the Festival Director of the Unrestricted View Film Festival. The highly-respected horror outlet, London Horror Society, are sponsoring the event.
A great opportunity for new and upcoming filmmakers to show their talents to fans of the genre, and press who will be present at every event, offering reviews and interviews after the screening has taken place. Scott Lyus along with Tony Sands (writer for UK Horror Scene), will be producing a new interview show for all filmmakers to talk about their film and genre cinema.
The Black Sunday Film Festival is a festival created by genre fans and filmmakers for genre fans and filmmakers. We want to see everything from low budget to Hollywood production, from 45 seconds to 2 hours. No matter your skill set or budget, as long as you have a killer film, we want to screen it! So if you love genre cinema and need a place to hang out every month and meet likeminded people, this is the festival for you. We don’t want to just build a festival, we want to build a community. We guarantee, you’ll never be the same again!
