Sick Chick Flicks Film Festival quickly became our "white whale" this year. At every horror festival, event, or screening we'd go to we'd hear someone mention "Sick Chicks." It was this super cool, lady horror film festival that everyone was talking about. We're ladies who make cool horror flicks, so we decided immediately that we NEEDED to get into this one. And thank god or whoever, WE GOT IN! So as I'm sure you can imagine, we are more than pumped to announce that Inside The House will be screening at the 2018 Sick Chick Flicks Film Festival.
Here's a little about the amazing women who founded the festival and what they've been up to in the horror industry:
Founded by Christine Parker in 2012, Sick Chicks was formed to address the need for female fiilmmakers to collaborate and learn how to make horror films. They have since made 3 short films and collaborated with Christine's other company Adrenalin on the feature film Fix It In Post. The Tell-Tale Heart: Sisters is their most recent short film endeavor and is making the festival rounds and winning awards! They are currently working on Christine's 5th feature film, Blood of the Mummy.
They came up with the brilliant idea of starting their own film festival in 2016 so they could not only support local female filmmakers but also support women who make films all over the world!
You can put money on it that we'll be at this festival in September. Will you be there?
Inside The House has found a home in yet another renowned horror film festival; the one and only Hollywood Horrorfest. But don't be fooled by the name, it's way more than just your average film festival. Here's what the organizers have to say about their event:
Welcome to HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2018 – the Awards festival that both screens films in competition & helps you network, promote and sell your film, and gets your film in the TV series HHF PRESENTS.
Over the years there has been an explosion of Indie Horror film festivals. And while that’s always great news, after the awards have been handed out, many film-makers are left wondering what to do next. Too often many acclaimed, award winning features and shorts remain unsold and undistributed. The industry has changed dramatically over the last few years and HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST 2018 reflects that change.
Ultimately [the Hollywood Horrorfest] is a great opportunity to screen, promote and sell your work – all in one place. We can’t promise you’ll make a sale but we hope you will be far closer to your goal than ever before. Or as we like to say…
SCREEN, BE SEEN & MARKET YOUR DREAM.
It's an honor to have our film screening at a genre festival that is actively taking strides to help its filmmakers progress in the industry. We are truly thankful for the opportunity.
Atlanta, here we come! Inside The House has been selected to screen as part of the Horror-Comedy Shorts Block at the Atlanta Shortsfest on July 6th. Here's a little more about the fest:
Traditionally, short films often do not garner the attention they deserve on the festival circuit. Atlanta Shortsfest was established to spotlight and promote excellent short films, and provide an important platform to share and discuss your work with appreciative audiences and fellow filmmakers.
Horror and Comedy are two of our favorite things, so there's no way we're gonna miss this one. Stay tuned for an update from our road trip down to Atlanta.
Inside The House has found a new audience in Charleston, SC. Sadly, none of the Daisy Dukes team will be able to attend this super cool film festival. Here's a little about what Crimson Screen:
The Crimson Screen Horror Film Fest screens and awards all types of horror feature films, short films, and screenplays including: slashers, thrillers, zombie vampire, music video, documentary, experimental, student films and more from all over the world! All films featured in the festival compete for a "CRIMMY" award in many categories including "Best Feature", "Best Short", "Best Director", "Best Actor" and more!
We are so excited to be nominated for two awards at this prestigious festival: BEST SHORT FILM and BEST SFX. We hope to be able to screen in this incredible fest in the future and to travel to beautiful South Carolina to celebrate with the other talented filmmakers and film lovers!
Well, it turns out the folks in Seattle are just as dark and twisted as us at Daisy Dukes, because they've selected Inside The House to screen as part of the Best of Bonebat Screening at the Seattle Crypticon Horror Convention on May 5th. Here's a little more about the convention:
Crypticon Seattle is the largest convention of its type in the Pacific Northwest ... Fans come to meet their favorit e celebrities, and to watch the latest films – many making their premiere at Crypticon! Fans also come to purchase gifts and collectibles, meet their favorite authors, dress up as their favorite characters, learn the latest makeup techniques, meet other fans, and enjoy macabre-themed party events. Crypticon is the gathering of the true fan of creepy stuff in all its forms.
We're stoked to get to be a part of such a cool event. Thanks, Seattle!
What the what?! Another festival selection for Inside The House?!?! We almost can't believe it. Our hilariously gross little film has found another home, this time in Seattle, WA at the BoneBat "Comedy of Horrors" Film Fest. Here's a little bit about the fest:
The BoneBat "Comedy of Horrors" Film Fest is an annual evening of giggles and gore, where we present the finest in independent Comedy/Horror features and shorts from around the world, amazing live music and prizes galore, all hosted by Steve and Gord of The BoneBat Show
BoneBat announced their official film selections for their 2018 Fest happening on April 14 in episode 163 of their podcast. Gve it a listen HERE. Sadly, the Daisy Dukes crew is already scheduled to attend another festival the same weekend, so we won't be in attendance this year. But if you're in the area, we hope you'll go, because this seriously looks like it's going to be an awesome event.
P.S. We're kinda in love with their poster...
