Charlotte Horror Fest

The Charlotte Horror Fest is horror and sci-Fi film festival taking place every October in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event is produced by Indie Film Force, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2005, which also produces the already established Charlotte Film Festival

The mission of the Charlotte Horror Fest is to bring filmmakers and film fans together for a celebration of the Horror and Sci-Fi genres. To create an event where the films can receive a quality projection that is on par with the dedication and perseverance that went into making them and fans can experience the works the way the filmmakers envisioned it. Along the way, we encourage fans to jump in and participate in whatever creative way feels right, so that the recipe will be complete and we’ll be able to fulfill what is the ultimate goal of the festival: to create and celebrate community.

Now, we are filmmakers too. So we understand that excellence is usually more easily noticed if it’s formally awarded. With that in mind, the 2012 Charlotte Horror Fest will present the following 17 awards:

  • Best Feature
  • Best Short
  • Best Student Film
  • Best Short Screenplay
  • Best Horror Film Trailer
  • Best Charlotte Feature
  • Best Charlotte Short
  • Best Actor
  • Best Actress
  • Best Cinematography
  • Best Music
  • Best Editing
  • Best Visual Effects
  • Best Make-up
  • Audience Choice Best Feature
  • Audience Choice Best Short
  • Audience Choice Best Student Film

Victor Ruano

Victor Ruano by Sombra -There are four elements that make up the foundation of my memories and of my present, that is to say, of me. They gave birth to and laced themselves through all the situations that mold my life. Two of them arrived at the same time, while I was still a child: my mother's garden and my father's library. I remember the first one deeply, like a cloudy horizon. A forest of roses, with stems that reached to the sky. And the second one, lumin...
