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 a 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 5 awards on offer, the only rule we have is that your film submission needs to be 30 minutes or under.

Here are the winners for the 2023 festival - https://bloody-flicks.co.uk/2023/03/04/winners-of-the-bloody-flicks-awards-2023-announced/

Submissions are open now open for our 2024 event.
If you are submitting a foreign film we do ask you to provide hard-coded English subtitles.

Voting on awards will be done by attendees and our independent judging panel with winners announced on 11 March 2024.
Each winner will receive a commemorative award certificate.

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 but we do ask that they were produced from January 2022 onwards.

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.

    Lovely festival - small but well formed with an excellent lineup of films and a great atmosphere in which to enjoy them. There are not that many horror festivals in the UK compared to the US and Bloody Flicks ought to become a firm fixture on the calendar!

    I submitted my new film "WreckVlogs" to the trailer showcase. It was exciting to be featured on the Bloody Flicks YouTube channel! Will definitely submit the full short for next year's event and highly recommend Bloody Flicks as a great festival for horror lovers.
