Viscera Film Festival!

Meh

Shannon Lark one of my favorite Fresh Meat Vixens shot me a line to let me know about her brand new film festival. The Chainsaw Mafia, a horror production company specializing in film and splatter theater, has created a brand new type of festival that is rather exclusive.

The online short horror film fest has been spawned by the Viscera Series, which is a collection of films, dance, theater, and photography made only by women, in every single aspect of production. All Viscera material is published on Thechainsawmafia.com.  Viscera has come about to help raise the low ratio of women to men in the horror genre, especially behind the camera. This fest is particularly geared towards beginning female horror filmmakers.

For the winners, the films will be put on a Viscera Series DVD and distributed on thechainsawmafia.com, which also houses a free networking board for horror filmmakers. Each winner will be featured on the site as a Viscera woman, and will remain up there with a bio, picture, and links to her work indefinitely. The Chainsaw Mafia is teaming up with horror film festivals across the United States to help promote Viscera by picking the film of their choice to play at their own festival. Sponsors such as Pretty-Scary.net, Cadaver Girls, and Bump in the Night Productions support the festival and there is a monetary award for the winner.

Early deadline is June 1st, 2007. Final Deadline is October 1st, 2007. There is no entry fee. Length of piece can be no less than 30 seconds and no more than 4 minutes. The simpler the better is stressed to the applicants.
