El Crítico (The Critic)

Director: Hernán Guerschuny.

Tellez is a severe and prestigious film critic, totally weary of Hollywood romantic comedies and certain that best of cinema already died. Maybe because of its work, suffers from what he calls the 'maladie du cinema': He sees the world like if it was a big movie he can't avoid criticizing. He unexpectedly meets Sofia, a young, attractive woman that has little in common with his good taste. 'Elemental, constructed on a basis of cliches' he would describe her. Random bring them together over and over in strangely idyllic situations. He tries to escape from a staging that he loathes, but suspects that the movie genre that he hates is taking revenge.

Only Fair

Director: Peter Rautek.

 

 

The short film „Only Fair“ travells through the history of mankind. During this journey man has increasingly distanced from nature and lost the sense for what really matters in the end. But fatal actions of the past do not remain unpunished – stress, diseases, addiction, greed, power and fear are hard on our heels. Is it only fair that one little mistake could erase mankind forever from the blue planet? Or is the question rather when we take this final step? Will the world be a better place after creation's crowning glory has vanished?

Love Unlimited

It combines the humanity found in "The Constant Gardener" with the action of "The Bourne Trilogy", adding a twist of magical realism.

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

LA Horror Fest

The LA Horror Fest was founded to celebrate our passion for horror films and recognize the winning combination of talent required to make terrific horror movies that straight up scare the bejeezuzs out of us! The LA Horror Fest is unique insofar as delivering the perfect fusion of film festival and convention. While the focus of the The LA Horror Fest will center around exhibiting creative genius on the silver screen, we also aim to create a hip and entertaining environment for enjoying the Barnsdall Art Park and time between screenings. There will be vendor tables, celebrity guests making out autographs, swag and giveaways, music/ bands/ DJ’s, media buzz, alcohol and food. Our Friday night spectacular will be a midnight screening of a cult classic favorite (TBD) with special guest appearances by the filmmaker and cast. Saturday night will boast the awards ceremony followed by a VIP party. One great weekend, jam packed with film and lots more!
