I myself am a filmmakers (Director, Writer and Actress) and have been through the film festival curcuit many times with my short and feature films. Since November 2020 I have been running my Youtube Channel called Sarah of Horror where I review horror movies and show other horror content and now it is time to highlight other filmmakers in the horror genre through my channel. Once every year on October 31st I will hold an online horror film festival where I will announce the winners in each category in a lenghty video on my Youtube Channel. I know that it isn't cheap to send your films or screenplays to festivals and that is why I wanted to keep the entry fees as low as I can. October 2023 will be the second time the Sarah of Horror Festival will be held and I can't wait to see all the talent that is within the horror community.

Any movie and trailer that is accepted and nominated for an award will be up on the Sarah of Horror Youtube Channel for three days (with the filmmakers permission) starting on the 28th of October and then the movie will be taken down and the festival will end on October 31st with the award ceremony video on my channel. I will also promote, have interviews with the accepted entries etc leading up to the festival.
