We were so honoured to screen our feature last year in competition - and coming from Australia -we had no idea what to expect! WE WERE BLOWN AWAY…It's what horror sci fi festivals should all be like!

Smart Slider 3 is the best slider that i’ve tried so far. There’s so many useful functions and easy to understand how to use it.

Without [Shriekfest], I might never have made the connections I have…Denise and her festival have opened more doors for me with one contest than several years’ worth of queries!
