Horror Film Festivals w/Dr. Michelle Conty
Being horror filmmakers, we like to have guests who can specifically help other horror filmmakers. Well here she is, the Events Manager and Assistant Director of the Horrorhound Film Festival, Dr. Michelle Conty!
Michelle was recently in NYC to shoot interviews for her upcoming educational series, Professor Of Horror, where she will speak to numerous horror filmmakers in order to get advice, tips, and tricks on how to help you to improve your own horror film productions!
Specifically this week, we discussed with her the process of submitting to Horrorhound, and how to improve your festival experience once you have been selected. How to communicate with the festival, how to promote your film at the festival, as well as some tips on what festivals are looking for, and reasons why your film may not have been selected.
This coming weekend is a big one for us! We will be attending the Scares That Care Charity Film Festival in Virginia, and our new short MissUnderstood Monster will be screening Friday night there, and we will also be running their 5K Charity Run on Saturday Morning!
Also this weekend, we unfortunately will not be in attendance, but Matryoshka will be screening at Midsummer Scream in LA on Saturday, and both MissUnderstood and Matryoshka will be at the Brightside Tavern Short Film Fest in Jersey City, NJ on Saturday Night as well! So, if you’re in the area, hit up one of these fests and #SupportIndieHorror!
