This is an opportunity to view horror and sci-fi films already well-known and those created by up and coming stars. Visitors have the opportunity to meet various stars and directors. Past participants have included Patrick Rea, Todd Sheets, Courtney Gaines, Dee Wallace, Adrienne Barbeau, and the cast from Halloween to name a few.

The short film showcase will feature the best short horror/sci-first films from around the world.

As of now, feature film screenings at Slash and Bash are currated, but the Slash and Bash Short Film Showcase will be open for submissions.

Criteria for the Slash and Bash short film showcase are as follows:

Must be a film of 15 minutes or less in the horror, sci-fi or related genre.

Must not be currently distributed as a part of a larger anthology film.

Must be the original material of the filmmaker(s) with all necessary clearances (including music) in place. Filmmaker releases Slash and Bash Film Fest of all liability regarding copyright/intellectual property claims by representing that the work is theirs and that ALL necessary rights have been cleared.

Make us scream, make us laugh, shock us, give us nightmares and show us something new!

    I submitted my short film "Norma" to the 2017 "Slash and Bash Film Festival" and was lucky enough to be selected for screening. Though I was unable to attend the festival, the organizers were very friendly and well organized.

    Nice to be named an Official Selection, but no feedback from organizers.
