The Black Sunday Film Festival returns in 2024 for Chapter 5!
Now in our fifth year, we have relocated the festival to Chelmsford, Essex - bringing our unique brand of horror to one of the oldest towns in the UK. We have also partnered with Odeon Cinemas, with our three day event taking place inside the four walls of the Odeon, Chelmsford located in the heart of the town centre! Once again sponsored by Arrow Video, we promise to bring a mix of the best genre films from around the world to the heart of Essex.
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.
Come join us, as 2024 shapes up to be bigger and better than ever before. Do Not Miss This!
