It’s that time of year again- Women in Horror Month, a time to celebrate women on and behind the screens of your favourite horror flicks and to make way for horrors rising stars!
Film-makers such as Ana Lily Amirpour and Jennifer Kent are proving that women are producing some of the best original horror around right now and we want to extend our arms to you lovely people and see what you’re made of! Any form of horror is acceptable from paranormal, found-footage, gory or psychological- anything goes!
As long followers of this blog will know, last year we held a 7 part WiHM showcase which was incredibly amazing but a huge task. So, because of the huge influx of films we had last year, this year we are accepting submissions until the 15th of February. These submissions will then be judged and voted on by our SQ staff writers to select our top 5 Women in Horror flicks for a 5-part showcase on the blog over the last week of February. All we need from you is a working Vimeo/YouTube link and a paragraph about yourself and the film. Should you be selected as part of our Top 5, we’d love if you were able to be contacted for a small email interview about your film too!
We look forward to seeing your submissions!
