FEATURE FILM SELECTIONS

FRACTURED (UK) 2017 (*World Premiere)
Directed by Jamie Patterson
Description:
When a tire blows on the way to a romantic countryside getaway, Rebecca and Michael sense someone is watching.

3 DEAD TRICK OR TREATERS (Canada) 2017
Directed
by Torin Langen
Description: After stumbling upon the graves of three murdered trick or treaters, a small town paperboy discovers a series of handwritten horror stories tacked to the children’s headstones. Penned by a deranged pulp author driven mad by his craft, the stories chronicle grisly tales of Halloween rites, rituals and traditions. Absent of dialogue and heavy on atmosphere, 3 Dead Trick or Treaters is a horror chiller unlike any you’ve seen before.

Directed
by Mathieu Turi

This 3 day showcase highlights the most talented filmmakers from around the world. Its primary focus is to help filmmakers reach their true creative potential by opening up networking and visibility across the industry.
