Submissions deadline looms for Grimmfest 2018


Independent horror filmmakers have just 2 days left to submit their film’s for the 10th anniversary of Grimmfest.

The annual celebration of horror takes place at the Printworks in Manchester between 4th and 7th October.

GRIMMFEST’s special guest will be actress and horror genre icon BARBARA CRAMPTON. Renowned for her roles in cult classics such as RE-ANIMATOR and FROM BEYOND, Barbara continues to be a major figure in contemporary genre cinema, appearing in such acclaimed recent releases as YOU’RE NEXT, BEYOND THE GATES, SUN CHOKE, WE ARE STILL HERE and REPLACE.

Festival director Simeon Halligan said: “This is our 10th anniversary year and to celebrate, we will be focusing on women in horror. We’ve already announced our new awards structure and the all-female jury but we also felt it was perfect timing to invite one of our favourite screen stars to the festival”.

Barbara will be talking about her acting career and will introduce a special screening of 80’s horror classic RE-ANIMATOR as well as a premiere of one of her new movies. She will also receive a lifetime achievement award, sponsored by Horror Channel.

Full festival passes for the 10th edition of GRIMMFEST are now on sale. Further programme details will be revealed over the coming months, along with day passes and individual film tickets.
