There’s a new horror film festival ready to go bump. The ANINA film festival is set to shiver your timbers in the Devon market town of Newton Abbot in October.
ANINA (A Nightmare In Newton Abbot) is a brand new horror film festival. It’s a celebration of off-kilter, independent short film where weird is wonderful and strange is beautiful.
It takes place in the atmospheric Tuckers Maltings, evoking the dark combo of both rural and industrial heritage in the market town. And it promises a unique experience and memorable screenings.
It has been spawned from the darkly fertile mind of Bex Phillips, who is in the process of making her own horror feature The Medusa Box.
“I am a huge horror fan and I want to use the festival to champion this genre that I feel is very often under appreciated and misunderstood and share my love for it,” said organiser Bex.
“ANINA will be a celebration of the creativity, diversity, passion and enthusiasm indie horror exudes. I’m also really excited about the location, which will enhance the eerie and off-kilter vibes creating an intimate, and unique experience.”
Bex is a choreographer and fixture on the indie film scene, which is why ANINA is firmly setting itself as an indie film fest for indie filmmakers. It embraces the ethos creativity and mutual support. Submissions are even Pay What You Can, for the cash-strapped creatives out there, and for those who revel in grass-roots creativity and community.
