Elisabeth Fies's Bleedfest returns this coming Sunday with a Women In Horror month inspired lineup of films. A blood drive supporting the event will also take place as well as some very special guest appearances including the one and only Kevin 'Witchboard' Tenney.
The event itself costs dinero and it survives on moola donated by kind folks like you. If you can spare some extra schillings, please donate a few to this fantastic event which has allowed for a brighter spotlight to be shown on independent filmmakers and their works.
The feature film is the US premier of SLAUGHTERED, a slasher whodunit by Australian writer/director Kate Glover. VIP guests include Lil Zane, award recipients Katt Shea and Stacy Title, genre journalist Nic Brown from Kentucky, underground filmmaker Lori Bowen from Florida, actresses Tara Cardinal and Michelle Tomlinson, and horror director Kevin Tenney. Carl Manes of I Like Horror Movies will reprise his popular horror trivia with giveaways. A showing of Dark Art and Fine Art will be available for purchase by internationally renowned horror photographer April A. Taylor.
The Awards Show will include the audience’s choice for best short in competition, and Elisabeth Pinto will receive the Best Producer Award. Horror icon Katt Shea will be given the Inanna Trailblazer Award. Stacy Title will be awarded the Inanna Best Social Statement Award. The Inanna Award was designed exclusively for BleedFest by amazing horror filmmaker and mask-maker Neal Harvery of Rubber Gorilla.
