The Ax Wound Film Festival features an eclectic selection of horror films written and directed by women and non-binary filmmakers from around the world.
Special Notice regarding 2021:
Since 2015, the festival has taken place at the Hooker-Dunham Theater and Gallery in Brattleboro, VT. Due to the pandemic, we canceled in 2020 and airing on the side of caution, we will host the 2021 festivities on the virtual platform, Eventive.
“Ax Wound showcases features, shorts, and trailers and offers plenty of panels and networking opportunities, plus a long list of attending moviemakers and other guests, all part of a friendly, supportive environment for female talent. Diversity is not just Ax Wound’s mission statement; it also describes the impressive variety of themes and subjects of its showcased films.” -MovieMaker Magazine
