Buried Alive Film Fest in Atlanta, GA

The modern age of digital filmmaking has flooded the market with tons of films, one seemingly indistinguishable from the next. The depth and breadth of horror fandom, combined with the rapid growth of independent filmmaking, have led to an explosion in indie films dealing with the terrifying, macabre, gory, and bizarre.

The Buried Alive Film Fest of Atlanta is your chance to prove your film’s worth. No matter if it’s feature-length or shortform, a slasher or a ghost story, a zombie flick or a horror comedy, a suspenseful thriller or a horror documentary, all films in this exciting and growing genre are welcome. Our staff and judges come from across the local horror community, and with their discerning eyes can truly decide what should remain buried and what should be unearthed.

Time has passed, and Cain is coming out of the shelter to find the place where he will die. The place where the last man will die.

Call for Entries
Features and Shorts
 [And in case you're wondering, short films are 30 minutes or less. Features run at least 75 minutes. If you're in the middle...sorry. Maybe next year, we'll add a "long shorts" section to the festival!]

All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of hardened horror freaks - we'll get back to you, by December 23, 2010 at the latest, and let you know whether you've been accepted. If you want, we can also review the film in detail on; that is entirely optional, but if you're looking to get buzz started, that would be a good way, since the site gets 1,000+ visitors per day. Let us know with your entry if you'd rather we didn't do that though, and we'll happily keep quiet.

What's in it for me, you say? Well, the winner of both the Best Short and Best Feature will receive a domestic and International distribution deal from Brain Damage Films and Maxim Media International. Other film distribution companies and studios are invited to attend and may be interested in your film. We are working with sponsors to offer a cash prize and we will post prizes when they are available.
There is no better way to get your film seen by horror fans. Other entries may also be offered contracts, if they're deemed worthy, but the winners get that as a guarantee. There'll also be an 'Audience Choice' award for the best single film, be it short or feature. We haven't quite worked out what the prize is for that yet though!

Any questions, please feel free to email us, at or you can call 602-399-9500, and we'll happily answer your queries.
