Toronto International Short Film Festival

The Toronto International Short Film Festival provides a showcase for the best short-form cinema and its creators in the world.

Macabre Faire Film Festival

Macabre Faire Film Festival Mission:

To provide a respectful, competitive, celebratory and affordable film fest event that is judged by a panel for independent filmmakers to enter their Strange-ifical, Weird-ifical, Horror-ifical, Sci-fi-tastical, Fantastical and Macabre-licious films to be viewed by the fans with the opportunity to win awards, increase film visibility via press and possibly obtain distribution. All this while maintaining manageable entry fees.

What's it all about?

TwitchTwitch Productions presents Long Island's only Macabre Faire Film Festival 2x a year with its main focus always being the "Official Selections" and its filmmakers/crew.

For starters the word "Macabre" is pronounced: Ma-Cob. The "re" is hardly ever heard. What does it mean?

Although it is an adjective meaning: disturbing and horrifying because of involvement with or depiction of death and injury, we usually approach the Macabre Faire Film Festival with a lighter touch in the sense that, not all of the films screened have been a gore fest. Of course, there isn't anything wrong with adding some gore to a macabre film fest but, when we hear the word "Macabre" we remember those hauntingly fascinating films that starred legendary greats such as: Vincent Price & Peter Cushing. Or those fantastic Gothic horrors like those from "Hammer" films. These names in themselves represent what "macabre" means to us. What we are saying is that the word "Macabre" doesn't have to be about the hardcore gore, violence or scare but instead it could be about what you don't see or hear but, somehow manages to reach your fear's core. Let's also not forget those fantasy films or comedies with their horror twists. Truth be told that those exist too and yes, we welcome them. How can we not? Would you have turned down something like "The Evil Dead's: Army of Darkness" which is both a fantasy, a comedy and a horror wrapped into a tight burrito? Yeah, we wouldn't either. So folks, this is what many of the films selected for the Macabre Faire Film Festival have to offer. About the only thing we may have to say "No Thanks" to would be a romantic comedy/drama... unless, there's a monster or weird dark force that takes over then we may reconsider.

We have had judges and guests such as director Stevan Mena "Bereavement", Eileen Dietz "The Exorcist", Doug Jones "Hell Boy", Cleve Hall "Monster Man", Michael Gingold "Fangoria", Nick Nicholson "CNN Film Critic", Evan Ginzburg "The Wrestler" and others.

Trophies & Award Certificates will be presented.

Also note: Elsie Ginsberg is currently the Acquisitions Manager for the popular interactive live streaming: www.MonsterChannel.Tv With this said, all films submitted to the Macabre Faire Film Festival become eligible to be part of the channel's programming. All films will undergo review by the Monster Channel's additional management team for consideration. If a film is not chosen as an Official Selection for the Macabre Faire Film Festival this does not mean that the film may not be considered for programming on the Monster Channel. Forms from Fourth Castle that grants permission to showcase your film to Monster Channel's captured audience can be found with the Film Fest forms at: www.MacabreFaireFilmFest.com

Keep in mind, the Monster Channel is a bonus feature to submitting your film to the Macabre Faire Film Festival and completely optional. Programming shall begin streaming on the Monster Channel of the selected original films by the later part of 2013.

The Macabre Faire Film Festival currently takes place at the Best Western Mill River Manor Hotel in Rockville Centre, NY offering 3 screening rooms. This allows us to screen between 25-50 films per event (totals vary according to amount of days allocated for the event). It is presented by our umbrella company "TwitchTwitch Productions" which is family owned and operated. The brand "Macabre Faire" may be recognized by many because of it's affiliation with the "Macabre Faire" convention-like party events that take place through out the year occasionally for a weekend long gathering.

Our Macabre Faire events and Film Festival have a reputation for being a very friendly environment with a wonderful celebratory ambiance within an intimately sized space. Here's what Fox 5 News had to say about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oVRMl4BQwQ&feature=share

Purgatory III Film Exhibition

+ CALL FOR FILM SUBMISSIONS NOW OPEN +

purgatory / noun / an intermediate place or state
of temporary suffering for expiatory purification

Within the word “purgatory”, it is easy to envision condemned souls, torment and darkness. However, purgatory may also reflect the cyclic state in which we often rediscover or recreate ourselves anew from within our personal inflictions. Sometimes it is the necessary stage to exorcise ourselves from the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps it is the serene place of self reflection and realization.

From within this, DAMNED proudly presents an exhibition of powerful cinema called Purgatory. Held on March 8th & 9th 2013 at the Tangent Gallery in Detroit, Purgatory will present various short films of deeply introspective, beautifully disturbing and darkly enlightening subject matters from filmmakers local and worldwide. This is not an industry-focused horror film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal damnations. (The full film schedule is listed further below)

The Acid Theatre

Director: The Heyl Brothers.
In this alternate reality of the ‘50’s we follow a little girl “Iza” (Lisa Eernisse) who after a horrifying incident with her father, wakes up in the afterlife. Here she meets strange creatures of the night, who take her to a party of darkness hosted by “Rinse”. Surrounded by terrifying creatures she feels utterly disrupted in her reality. Rinse notices this and shows her the alternate version of the party through the power of his music. Now Iza is in a blissful place, meeting all the wonderful creatures she once feared. But the journey is far from over. Iza needs to get home and only Rinse can show her the way… The Concept - Additional Information The Acid Theatre is a unique concept evolving from a meeting between a director and a music artist. The video and the song are created simultaneously by an extraordinary joint venture of two professionals, both specialized in their game. Challenged by their ability to adapt to one another the project was put to a whole new level of creativity. Another unique thing about this unique production is that it’s been fully financed by the artists. This gave them total creative freedom to apply the newest techniques in cinema production, like the custom developed E.D.I.© effect. Dubtek DuBTeK , a mix of “Dubstep” and “Tekno”, is a new futuristic and up-beat dance music. DuBTeK is on the rise to be the next big thing and “The Acid Theatre” shall be the messenger to deliver this prophecy to the devoted followers of dance music. EDI “Extreme Detail Image” is the new ultra high definition experience which will give your film the fullest and richest detail possible. The Acid Theatre© is the first film project in which E.D.I has been fully enabled.
