Horror Screenings Film Festival Bloody Mirror is a film festival dedicated to horrors.
The festival is a part of an international project MoviExpa (Los Angeles, CA), distributing independent films Worldwide to the audience, cinemas, channels, and online services.
We hold the festival live in popular venues (cinemas, conference halls, parks, etc.) to get closer to the audience.
During the event, each film receives the audience evaluation by 6 criteria: script, directing, acting, camerawork, music, and impressiveness. Filmmakers receive detailed results personally after the event. Based on those results the best film receives the Audience Award.
A professional jury panel that includes award-winning filmmakers, producers, as well as representatives of distributors, buyers, and online streaming services, also reviews selected works and gives their awards.
We receive submissions from more than 150 countries so we reach a loyal audience from those countries.
That’s why if we have permission from the filmmaker, we broadcast the film on a special channel on our website.
In this way, we bring the film to an audience from all over the world
Movies are being screened on a special channel on our website without a download option during the festival days and with the permission of the copyright holder only.
Since our festival is a part of a distributing project, each film is being analyzed for a possible strategy for further development. If the filmmaker has an interest in this, the team will provide a plan after the festival.
So, what can you expect when you submit your film to our film festival:
🟢 Live screenings of your film in front of the severe and multinational audience
🟢 Audience feedback with the evaluations of your film. This feedback is very important for further film distribution as well.
🟢 Promotion of your film on our social media and among our customers and site visitors
🟢 Professional jury awards.

🟢 The Winner receives the Trophy: the local gift inspired by the award-winning movie.
