The Big Black

Director: Oliver Kyr.
Our forefathers warned us not to leave the burden of a guilt behind when we die. Because before your guilt-ridden soul is redeemed to heaven you would enter a queer, dark world. Welcome to the nightmare of purgatory. Welcome to the „Big Black“. 20-year-old Jack hunts the nightmare of his past and crosses paths with mysterious Eve. The beautiful girl who is either his Guardian Angel or his Final Doom. Time runs out as Jack tries to escape the demons of the waste lands in order to find redemption. Intense pictures and gripping music form a poetic base for a surreal plot and bizarre characters: An independent film with a renowned European cast.

Charlotte Horror Fest

The Charlotte Horror Fest is horror and sci-Fi film festival taking place every October in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event is produced by Indie Film Force, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2005, which also produces the already established Charlotte Film Festival

The mission of the Charlotte Horror Fest is to bring filmmakers and film fans together for a celebration of the Horror and Sci-Fi genres. To create an event where the films can receive a quality projection that is on par with the dedication and perseverance that went into making them and fans can experience the works the way the filmmakers envisioned it. Along the way, we encourage fans to jump in and participate in whatever creative way feels right, so that the recipe will be complete and we’ll be able to fulfill what is the ultimate goal of the festival: to create and celebrate community.

Now, we are filmmakers too. So we understand that excellence is usually more easily noticed if it’s formally awarded. With that in mind, the 2012 Charlotte Horror Fest will present the following 17 awards:

  • Best Feature
  • Best Short
  • Best Student Film
  • Best Short Screenplay
  • Best Horror Film Trailer
  • Best Charlotte Feature

The Artifice

Director: JOSE ENRIQUE MARCH.
What if a filmmaker's mind begins to lose? What if he does not distinguish between reality and fiction? All mirrors always have two sides... Quique's mind, a former film director failed, is lost.
