Welcome to the annual Bloody Flicks Awards!
We're looking for the best and brightest in independent horror and cult cinema to submit your films.

Remember the legendary John Carpenter made his mark with a student film, so if you are student/amateur filmmaker and have something original to showcase - this is the festival for you!
We value creativity most of all, so scare, gross us out and shock us!

We have 7 awards on offer, the only rule we have is that your film submission needs to be 45 minutes or under.

Best Film
Best Foreign Film
Best Director
Best Actor/Actress
Best Special Effects
Best Music
Best Short (Under 10 Minutes)

Submissions will open on 29th July 2019 and close on 31st January 2020.
If you are submitting a foreign film we do ask you provide English subtitles.

Voting on awards will be done by attendees of the festival with winners announced 1st March 2020.
Each winner will receive a commemorative award trophy.

We ask that all submissions also agree for Bloody Flicks Awards to use stills from the film in promotional social media posts to advertise the festival.

There is no limit on the number of films you submit.

Submissions are only made through FilmFreeWay.

We ask that the file format of the screener be private links or downloadable.

Please note all submissions are subject to fees and these are non-refundable and final.

    It has been a fantastic honour to have been a part of the first ever Bloody Flicks Awards. We were lucky to pick up a couple of awards which we can confirm were received promptly after the announcements we’re made. Communication was clear the whole way through and we really appreciate the platform that the Bloody Flicks Awards have given us. We can’t wait to see what’s next and look forward to seeing it grow from strength to strength each year!
