Greetings Horror Fans and Filmmakers!

Submissions are now open for the 2023 Bleedingham Horror Film Festival.

We are eagerly awaiting to feast our eyes upon your cinematic creations filled with terror, monsters, flesh, blood, and all otherworldly and inter-dimensional delights!

Our judges are dying to see this year’s contestants and so we invite you to join us by participating in this year’s Bleedingham competitions! 

The judging panel consists of talented professionals and passionate horror aficionados who volunteer their own time to thoughtfully consider each film and score them based on several categories. 

Films are then selected based on final overall scores and the highest scoring films will be screened at the Pickford Film Center in October.

We have several categories open for submissions, please see our rules page and film freeway for more information on each submission category and submission fees. 

Do you have a film you’ve made in the last 2 years that you know will freak us out? Submit up until June 1 to take advantage of the Early Bird Special and save yourself some money! We know you have some scary stuff lying around in that dark basement, so brush it off and take your shot at winning by submitting it to Bleedingham.

Yes, there will be awards and cash prizes!
