The third annual Happenstance Horror Fest is here! Presented by George James Fraser of Stained Glass and Blood Bath Productions, the Happenstance Horror Fest features independent horror short films from around the word. Taking pride in its punk rock party atmosphere, the HHF hosts of variety of artists and horror themed vendors from the New England area. Special guests and judges will be in attendance, as well as many filmmakers.
George James Fraser started the film festival in 2016 as a way to present independent horror to a large audiences. Each year, a Fraser/Stained Glass and Blood Bath film is premiered. This year that film is Salt and Iron starring William DeCoff and Marissa Joy.
Awards are presented for best local, national, and international. The audience will also get the chance to vote for their favorite films in various categories including best death, best score, best FX, and more. 2018 will feature the very first recognition of women in horror award sponsored by Morbidly Beautiful.
Chunky’s Cinema and Pub has been home to the Happenstance Horror Fest since the beginning. With a full menu of food and adult beverage, the venue offers seats that are actually pulled from old Cadillacs and other classic cars. Fraser’s goal in this event is to hold a film festival that stands out from the rest.
The festival is taking submissions for films under 20 minutes as well as trailers. HHF is also seeking sponsors that are available to take part at any budget. Visit their Facebook page for more updates. Visit FilmFreeway to submit your film or trailer and here to buy tickets.
