Women in Horror Film Festival Announces Dates, New Awards

October 4-7, 2018 will mark the return of the Women in Horror Film Festival (WIHFF) to historic Peachtree City, Georgia!  The film festival, a breakout hit this year with Heather Langenkamp, the Soska Sisters, and Amanda Wyss among others in attendance, will take place at the newly remodeled Crowne Plaza Hotel and Conference Center just a few short miles away from Pinewood Stuidos, home of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”.

VIPs, press, filmmakers, and celebrity guests will walk the Dead Carpet for a special opening night party to kick off the four day weekend which will include workshops and panels covering a range of topics and demonstrations of the latest filmmaking technology.  WIHFF will also welcome a host of vendors and industry insiders eager to meet with fans and show off their wares.

The weekend will culminate in the highly anticipated awards ceremony where the Lizzie Awards will be front and center.  The awards, created by sculptor Karl Libecap, will be handed out with two new awards added to the line-up.

The Women in Horror Film Festival is thrilled to have found shared values and mutual support of the indie film community with two other film festivals for the addition of two very special awards.  The Better Horror Lizzie will be presented by Nightmares Film Festival, currently ranked as the best-reviewed horror film festival on FilmFreeway, and the all-new Narrative Drive Lizzie will be presented by Austin Revolution Film Festival, the best overall reviewed film festival on FilmFreeway. Women in Horror Film Festival is excited to host these additional opportunities to recognize the hard work of independent filmmakers!

Women in Horror Film Festival is now open for submissions via FilmFreeway.  For more information about the festival, make sure to check out their official website.  To keep up with all of the latest festival news, you can follow them on Twitter @WIHFF, on Instagram @womeninhorrorfilmfestival, and on Facebook!
