Buffalo, New York is bursting with independent horror filmmaking, with several features currently in production. We’re a blue collar city with a strong interest in the arts. We love concerts, sports, summer sunshine…and gory, envelope-pushing, taboo-breaking horror!Our bloody cinematic history dates back to 1981, when Harvey Weinstein of Miramax fame wrote and produced the slasher film THE BURNING in Buffalo. In 1995, local cinematographer James Gribbins directed part of SHADOW CREATURE here. And in 2006, Lloyd Kaufman made Troma Entertainment’s POULTRYGEIST: NIGHT OF THE CHICKEN DEAD in our humble city. More recently, several local filmmakers, including BUFFALO SCREAMS Founding Festival Directors Emil J. Novak and Gregory Lamberson, have created horror films in the Queen City. In Buffalo, thanks to our harsh winters and troubled football record, we have a survivor’s mentality, which is perfect for the horror genre.So they're having a Horror Film Festival in Buffalo and you can submit your very own movie.Submissions are to made here.And there's more information about Buffalo Screams right here.Deadline (no pun intended) is fixed to September 15th.Good luck !
