Event description

Description

What makes a terrifying Horror story? One vital element is suspense. Holding an audience’s fear and anxiety for long enough for that all important scare is a must-have on any Horror director’s checklist.

So to kick off our first event and to celebrate HALLOWEEN, I have programmed a series of shorts that explore how suspense is created in our ‘safe spaces’. Whether in our homes or at work, how can filmmakers transform the landscape from familiar to fearful? How do these filmmakers, within a short time, create a deadly world for hero and viewer alike?

We will begin with a handful of Horror animations, move onto our shorts and finish off with a very special screening of “Mab” followed by some special guests along the way.

We are being hosted in RedYellowBlue Stratford which is wheelchair accessible. Although there are no official age ratings we do not recommend the event suitable for children.
