The Shriekfest team goes the extra mile to support and promote indie films. We recommend this festival to all genre filmmakers!
…by far the most supportive group of artists I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I have made [many friends and colleagues].
…an incredible showcase for [independent filmmakers] at an awesome venue.
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!
