Submit to the Horror Film & Screenplay Festival

I just wanted to write to say how much I appreciated your notes on my script. These notes were clear, precise and objective. They will be of great help to me in improving the script. It is so rare that a competition sends something like this that I wanted to say thank you. A few times I have received notes from other competitions that so obviously didn’t even read the script that these were shocking at how amazing they were. Alright, I’m gushing at how great you guys are so I’ll stop. But seriously, very helpful and thank you.
– Joe Ferrante (Feature Screenplay, Killer App.)

Screenplay Readings take place every single month.

Read reactions from recent writers and filmmakers who have had their work showcased at the Horror Festival.

I was delighted watching the feedback video! Short movies may be shown at several festivals, but it’s not every day that the creators of those shorts get real-time feedback from a live audience. It made me really happy. Thanks for that!
– Oliver A. Dubois (Short Film, 1500 Ninos)

Thank you for getting back to me and thank you for your comments. I have just finished a re-edit of the film to tighten the timings throughout the film and remove a few of the shots that should have gone at the first edit.
– Pete Tomkies (Short Film, TEAM)

The experience at the Horror Festival is always a great one! The feedback videos are a great tool to study and learn from and actually sitting in the audience during the screening gives alot of great perspective. Our upcoming short HEIR is Co-Produced by RED SNEAKERS MEDIA, a great Toronto Film team we had the pleasure of meeting at an event during the Festival run of our previous short WORM. I’ll always remember and credit WILDsound for that opportunity to meet new collaborators!
– Richard Powell (Short Film, Familiar)

Was influenced by a random tweet from the Horror Twitter account to join the contest. After putting off contests for years (I’m very self-critical) I decided to take a chance and enter the contest. I’m happy I did!
– Kyle Jenkins (Feature Screenplay, The Fix Factor)

The audience seemed to really like the film and that validates all the effort and creativity and sacrifices you make to bring something like this into reality. You hope what you create will connect with people and it seemed like my film did that. I also appreciate how smart the comments were. Folks really got into the spirit of what “The Blood Of Love,” is about, which is: How far would you go to hold onto the person you love?
– Jeff Meyers (Short Film, The Blood of Love)

I loved how professionally other scripts were performed at the festival WILDsound and wanted to have my script read as well.
– Alison C Hall (Short Script, Walk With the Devil)

I felt very honored and then curious to hear people’e reactions.
– Gina Lee Ronhovde (Short Film, Boudoir)

I was delighted watching the feedback video! Short movies may be shown at several festivals, but it’s not every day that the creators of those shorts get real-time feedback from a live audience. It made me really happy. Thanks for that!
– Oliver A. Dubois (Short Film, 1500 Ninos)

HORROR Movie Pitches. Read over 150 feature script horror film loglines

The Horror Film. No matter what you think of them, it is a powerful movie genre that makes a lot of money for the studios. It has a large fan base which seems to be getting more popular every year thanks in large part to the internet and countless blogs written about them. Other than perhaps Comic Book/Action movies, no other genre is talked about more online than the horror genre.

Recently, on my personal blog, I talked about this genre while promoting the Top 100 Horror Films of All-Time List:
Horror Movies. WILDsound’s Top 100 Best of All-Time

There is a large debate about how they impact people. Are they just harmless entertainment, or can they linger in a negative way in our dreams and subconscious? And is there a line that shouldn’t be crossed in terms of violence and abuse of women? Is some of it really just “torture porn?”

Either way, horror films are not going anywhere. And you can read over 150 pitches on horror films on our network:
http://www.wildsoundfestival.com/horror_feature_film.html

At least 20 of those pitches will be made into a movie in the next 5 years and be at a theater near you sooner than later.

Here’s an example of a Horror Pitch:

Title: THE JACK O LANTERN

Written by: Damian Light

Genre: Horror

Type: FEATURE SCRIPT

LOGLINE: A man resurrects as a Jack O lantern in a small town hoping to reunite with his daughter, putting her social life in jeopardy.

WGA Registration Number: 1700341

Or, you can watch one of our many Logline Pitch Videos:
