Team Grimm Up North have just started accepting short film and feature film submissions for their Grimmfest 2014 horror and cult film festival, which will take place sometime in October 2014 in Manchester, England.
However, an extra bonus has been chucked in for filmmakers entering their movies: the chance to have their film distributed in the UK and internationally!
Team Grimm state on their website:
“This year, for the first time, Grimm Up North, in partnership with Raven Banner Entertainment will be offering a very special competition for all submitted feature and short films”.
When you submit your film for festival consideration, you will also have the option of entering our Grand Jury Competition. The feature film winner will be afforded the incredible and unique opportunity of having their film distributed in the UK by Grimm Entertainment and sold internationally by esteemed genre specialist sales company, Raven Banner. We will also create a Grimmfest 2014 compilation of the best shorts for UK distribution.
So if you’re a filmmaker looking to have your film presented to a lot of enthusiastic genre fans in Manchester and the chance of even more, you can enter via Grimmfest’s official website.
I’ve had the good fortune of covering the film festival for a couple of years now – in 2011 and 2013. Read my last year’s experience of Grimmfest to get a glimpse into life at the festival.
