Calling all independent horror/comedic filmmakers from around the world!
Foggy Isle is a macabre-themed film festival based out of Victoria, British Columbia, with a mission to showcase short films that celebrate all that is weird, macabre, and darkly hilarious. In short, Foggy Isle is more about a mood than a genre.
Seeing as 2020 was, for lack of better term, a colossal shit show, this edition of Foggy Isle will be focused on bringing the funny. If you have completed a short horror comedy or dark comedy, submit it to the 2021 edition of the Foggy Isle Film Festival!
The tentative plan is to make the 2021 edition of the Foggy Isle Film Festival an in-person cabaret-styled show with online streaming, with a backup plan of hosting an entirely online live show (as we did for the 2020 event) if the pandemic is still happening. The event will take place on 24 September 2021.
