The Black Sunday Film Festival returns in 2022 for Chapter 4!

Now in our fourth year, Black Sunday once again takes over London's best hidden underground cinema, the amazing Whirled Cinema! Sponsored by Arrow Video and the London Horror Society, we promise to bring a mix of the best genre films from around the world to the heart of London.

As in previous years, our goal is to put a firm spotlight on the best indie genre cinema, no matter the budget. Amateur or professional, we want to see your films.

Our definition of 'genre cinema' is not limited to just horror either. We want to see everything from sci-fi and dark comedy, to edgy drama, experimental animation and dark documentaries, to fantasy and everything in between.
Join us, as 2022 shapes up to be bigger and better than ever before. Do Not Miss This!

Non English Films must have English Subtitles.

    Brilliant festival, so happy my short HELLSPORK made its UK debut at Whirled Cinema. Super bummed I couldn't be there in person, but everyone involved did an incredible job keeping me up to date and in the loop.

    Our film ‘The Stairs’ was shown at Black Sunday Film Festival, unfortunately because of covid protocols we couldn't attend this year but we look forward to submitting again for future projects and hope to attend in-person. Very communicative and seems to be a fun festival.

    I can't recommend the Black Sunday Film Fest highly enough. Our short played in a very well curated segment of other shorts, each short different to the next but all were great. The organisers were very welcoming to all the filmmakers, and it was a great (if tricky to find!) venue. With this amount of love put into the festival I can see it growing from strength to strength.
