Women in Horror Month is thrilled to bring you the 5th annual Ax Wound Film Festival on November 15th & 16th, 2019 at the Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Our event features one evening followed by a full day of horror films made by women, workshops, panels, and excellent networking opportunities.

We are in the planning stages and as we have new information on the festivities this section will be updated.

+Attending filmmakers will receive a name badge, killer goodie bag, and an invitation on stage for a Q&A.

+We will promote you and your film via a blog post spotlight and multiple social media shout outs across all our platforms.

+10 filmmakers will win a copy of Final Draft Screenwriting software via raffle!

More TBA!

The Ax Wound Film Festival invites women filmmakers to submit Short Films, Feature Films, and Trailers that fall within any of the horror sub-genres.

Films will be considered regardless of prior screening status or year of completion.

    I wasn't able to attend the festival unfortunately, but the communication leading up to the festival was warm and friendly. Thank you very much for supporting Women in Horror and for supporting our film in particular :) Hope to make it over the pond to Vermont another year. Best wishes

  • I highly recommend submitting to AxWound. Their passion for horror and horror audiences is incredible. Communication was great. And, their support for filmmakers through social media posts was really appreciated. I hope to show there again so that I can make it to Vermount to take part!

    I was thrilled to have Lone Wolf included in Ax Wound Film Festival's official selection. I was unable to attend the festival but communication and social media shout-outs were great. I will definitely submit again and would love to attend in the future.

  • If you are a female genre filmmaker this is the festival to submit to. The atmosphere is supportive and there is so much camaraderie amongst the filmmakers. Hannah programs a fantastic festival and she has the biggest heart. I feel very honored to have had my short film screen here. Thank you Ax Wound!
