Glasgow Horror Festival is back for 2018! Expanding on our successful Halloween season horror festival, Popcorn Horror is proud to launch Glasgow Horror Festival: BITESIZE.
We know that horror is for life, not just for Halloween! Glasgow Horror Festival: BITESIZE is there to fill the long months between Halloweens, and provide a more condensed version of our annual October event. We're packing a lot into a single spooky evening though, with a horror feature double bill, two shorts programs, guest performer and horror raffle. Plus opportunity to pick up Popcorn Horror merch (and, of course grab some popcorn).
As always we will be showcasing the very best of independent horror talent, films which are innovative, inspiring and horrific. Glasgow Horror Festival aims to prove that creativity and quality filmmaking do not require a Hollywood budget, and to showcase horror outwith mainstream franchises to our local audience.
Join us this April for an evening packed with spooks and thrills in the heart of Glasgow, surrounded by your fellow horror fans, freaks and geeks of the city.
The festival is now open for submissions via FilmFreeway.
