South African HORRORFEST Film Festival highlights

The 6th annual South African HORRORFEST Film Festival will run from 28 October - 5 November 2010 @ The Labia Theatre, Orange Street, Cape Town, ZA

Since its inception in 2005 the South African HORRORFEST Film Festival has been the Halloween event on the continent, showcasing horror, the macabre & the strange from around the world.

The 6th installment of this exciting week of horrors will include a range of new movies, classics, fan favourites, sneak previews and premieres from across the globe, as well as several chapters of short films (international & local), Halloween dress-up prizes, and killer audience give-aways before each movie. In addition there will again be a big Horror DVD collection (of several dozen movies) up for grabs for one lucky viewer.

Then of course there is the spectacular live movie soundtrack performance to the screening of a classic silent horror movie by THE MAKABRA ENSEMBLE (created by members of TERMINATRYX, collaborating with members of LARK and violin maestro Matthijs Van Dijk).
While this will be their 5th movie enhanced with a new, eclectic soundtrack, early-August 2010 THE MAKABRA ENSEMBLE invaded S.A.'s biggest music festival for the 2nd year in a row with a live movie soundtrack performance (MACISTE IN HELL - Maciste all' Inferno).

The final festival line-up will be released soon.

The new literary leg added in 2009 with the Lounge Of Horror fiction readings has been expanded in 2010 to include Bloody Parchment's short story competition:

Closing date for short film-, feature film-, and short story entries is late-August! (extension by request - see website for full info

Another added feature comes in the shape of a dark art & photography exhibition which is in the works.

With the S.A. HORRORFEST nurturing South African moviemaking (and encouraging its own fresh identity) in tandem with local short film prize sponsors VISUAL IMPACT and HD HUB, this is now further transforming to include fiction writers, artists and photographers.

The limited edition 2009 HorrorFest / Provoyeur Wine range was very well received and something similar will be created for 2010.

While last year's special guest (American Werewolf In London's John Landis) couldn't make it, we are looking into bringing a prominent figure in Horror movies to the event. Fingers crossed.

Check out the original HorrorFest promo clip produced by the festival organizers (expanded soon for the 2010 event):
