Australia’s oldest and premier genre film festival celebrates its eleventh anniversary this year. Today it announces its 2017 call for entries.

“We’re very proud of our ongoing commitment to independent horror cinema ”, says A Night of Horror International Film Festival director Dean Bertram. “By maintaining our original pledge of showcasing films submitted to the festival – instead of sourcing the majority of films from sales agents, distributors, and other festivals, which has become the norm of the festival circuit – we will continue to provide an accessible outlet for emerging filmmakers.”

Filmmaker Ursula Dabrowsky agrees. She has had two submitted feature films screen at A Night of Horror Film Festival – FAMILY DEMONS (2009) and INNER DEMON (2014) – both of which acquired distribution as a result. “Without a doubt, A Night of Horror has been a massive leg up in terms of my success as an Australian horror filmmaker, and as far as I’m concerned, will continue to be one of the best ways to start off a horror film’s journey into the world,” says Ursula.

In 2017, A Night of Horror will again be taking place in conjunction with Fantastic Planet, Sydney Sci-Fi & Fantasy Film Festival. Together they provide Australia’s leading showcase of independent fantastic genre films. Combined, the festivals screened over 100 films in 2016 (24 features films, and 80 shorts and music videos).

Each festival retains an independent program and its own specific award categories. Both remain dedicated to presenting Sydney audiences with a stunning showcase of the latest in independent horror, sci-fi, fantasy and cult cinema.

Full entry details for both festivals can be found at the official websites:
