Shriekfest adds a NEW Category – HORROR MOVIE NEWS


Shriekfest, the Los Angeles Horror/SciFi Film Festival continues its tradition as Los Angeles’ Premier horror film event, presenting an exciting program of films each fall with beautiful Los Angeles as its backdrop. Now, in it’s 15th year, Shriekfest takes place at the legendary Raleigh Studios, which is the largest independent studio operator in the country. We offer filmmakers and film fans alike an ideal setting in a world-famous city. SHRIEKFEST provides both established and emerging filmmakers with media exposure, connections with the region’s diverse audiences, and participation in an acclaimed event attended by industry professionals as well as horror and scifi fans. Over the past fifteen years, Shriekfest has welcomed numerous indie icons into its family.

After 15 years, Shriekfest has decided to add a new category and we are very excited about it.  “We wanted to come up with a category that would allow more people to be involved and receive exposure in the festival.” said Denise Gossett, Festival Founder and Director.  “Most filmmakers don’t have a project to submit every year and this will allow everyone to be involved in the festival.”  This new category will cover demo reels from anyone in the industry:  directors, producers, editors, actors, writers, sound design, visual fx, makeup, etc.  Most industry people have a demo reel and many have trouble getting anyone to watch it.  This  new category  allows industry people to judge it and then the top demo reels will screen at the festival!  Prizes and a trophy will be awarded to the winner!

Demo reels can be any genre and must be 2 min or less.
