Expanding to include science fiction, fantasy, mystery, suspense, and noir to its foundation of horror films, Terror TV along with Acort International, a leading name in the distribution and presentation of independent horror films, takes this opportunity to connect with emerging short filmmakers with this festival. Soliciting films running from 5 to 30 minutes in length, the festival will review films until October 1. The winners will premiere on TerrorTV on Halloween. The channel is planning a virtual celebration online, then, a live celebration in 2021.
“With more than a dozen awards being offered, this is a prime opportunity for the emerging genre filmmaker,” says Darrin Ramage, the festival’s producer and CEO of Terror TV and Acort. Prizes include negotiation of a distribution contract; visibility on the television channel; interview and promotional opportunities; as well as certificates for best film, director, technical (animation or special effects), cinematography, acting, screenplay, and many others.
After only four months in official operation, TerrorTV has already enhanced its catalog with more than a dozen films; partnered with the first virtual horror convention (Phantasm Con 2020); opened its own store (teespring.com/stores/terrortv); created a horror news service (terrortv.com/blog); and connected to numerous podcasts across the country.
The channel’s first original program, Terror Talk, which focuses on issues facing the genre community, has already interviewed Anthony C. Ferrante (Sharknado), Reggie Bannister (Phantasm), Sara Karloff & Lynne Lugosi Sparks, Dacre Stoker, Terry Alexander (Romero’s Day of the Dead), Gil Adler (Tales from the Crypt, Superman Returns), the director, writer and stars of FOLLOWED, the director and entire cast of THE DARK OFFERINGS, horror novelist Owl Goingback, author/industry personality Joe Moe, and Damon Gerard, the founder of the horror fan social media site, SLASHER to name a few.
