Submissions are now open for the 9th annual A Night of Horror International Film Festival and the 6th edition of Fantastic Planet: Sydney Sci-Fi & Fantasy Film Festival.
The festivals are now accepting entries through both FilmFreeway and Withoutabox for the 2015 event. Categories include: Features, Shorts, Animations, Music Videos, and Screenplays.
Together, the festivals provide Australia's leading showcase of independent genre specific cinema. They screened over 100 films in 2014. Both fests retain separate and independent programs and their own specific award categories.
Filmmaker Kevin A. McCarthy (FURY: THE TALES OF RONAN PIERCE), describes his experiences at the 2014 festival: “I can't say enough great things about Sydney, Australia's A Night of Horror/Fantastic Planet International Film Festival... this festival has it all; filmmakers and actors presenting their bad-ass genre films, a beautiful venue, awesome parties, tons of new lifelong industry connections, and a festival staff that truly cares about hospitality... A Night of Horror/Fantastic Planet International Film Festival, truly wishes to unearth new talent. They are constantly looking for undiscovered films from around the planet... I know this to be true because they gave our crazy little film a chance when it seemed no one else would. It has opened all the right doors for our film.” Read feedback from more filmmakers here.
