The Fractured Visions Film Festival is returning once again in 2021 for a weekend of thrills, chills and (blood) spills. 2021 will also mark our biggest year yet as we embark on a new adventure in film distribution within the UK.

We can't wait to bring the best in global horror to Wales once again, in both short and feature formats. If you have been busy creating the bloodiest, craziest or just straight-up most horrifying film of the year - we want to see it!

Submit today and see why we're the most exciting new horror film festival to lacerate this beloved genre in years.

Films submitted in the incorrect category will be automatically disqualified and any fees paid will not be reimbursed. At our discretion, we may choose to transfer a film to the correct category, but only if the appropriate level of submission fee has been paid. Any excess fees paid will not be reimbursed.


A) Guidelines
Films that have been aired on UK television prior to the Festival, are available for purchase on DVD or on VOD in Europe, or are available for continuous online viewing in their entirety are NOT eligible.

Films previously submitted to Fractured Visions events are NOT eligible.
Films must be submitted for exhibition on DCP. Do not send film prints, master tapes, or other originals. We can only screen films from a DCP. If needed, the Festival will create a DCP for successful films that do not currently have one.

Entrant confirms and warrants required legal authority to submit the entry into the Festival and to use all music, images, and content in the entry. Entrant will allow usage of clips from the film for promotional use on television, radio, in print, and at live Festival events.

All entries must be either in English or subtitled in English. Non-English entries submitted without subtitles are not eligible. Exhibition copies of selected films must have English language or subtitles as the default play option.

Works in Progress: While entrants are permitted to submit films that are not fully complete (i.e., without final color correction and sound mixing), please note that the programming committee will only consider the version submitted; subsequent cuts or replacement copies will only be accepted at the request of the programming committee.

Only complete entries (including entry form, payment, and preview screener) will be processed.

Fractured Visions Film Festival is not responsible for incorrect wording in publications or on awards if the entry form is incorrect or illegible.

    Fractured Visions is one of a kind! Home of cult cinema.

    Staff is great and take care of the films like if they made them themselves.

    If you have a horror/sci-fi short film don't even hesitate to send it their way.

    I'm grateful my film was included in this festival and very happy I had attended. The communication and organization was top-notch. It's a small festival made by horror lovers for horror lovers, with a quality line-up of various horror sub-genres held in a cool venue. I especially loved that the films were presented as a "double-bill" of short+feature. I hope to see you guys again in the future!

  • What an honor to have been part of Fractured Visions' official selection this year. We could not unfortunately attend in the end, but nevertheless, seeing the fantastically well curated program, we can only be proud and looking forward to attend the event same time next year.
