A new category has been added to our FILMFREEWAY the LOCKDOWN HORROR SHORT. This includes any work with a length shorter than 20 minutes, shot during the quarantine. Beware that this is an off section so no trophy or prize will be assigned to your work, but there will be a special screening during the event entirely dedicated to this section.

Entry fee is set to 8.00$ (or 6.00$ for Gold Members).


As we’ve been asked during these days I’d like to clarify that we are scheduled between the end of November and the start of December so the fest is stil happening. We’ve not a precise date yet but it will be announced in May with the opening of the accreditation.

Meanwhile be sure to stay safe too by staying the HELL home and if you’d like to share with us what you’ll be watching/reading/playing during the lockdown you’re more than welcome on our Facebook page.

We’re really thrilled to announce that the first addition to the judges team is MR. SHINTARO KAGO, the craziest, bizarre and grotesque mangaka around.

Shintaro Kago’s style has been called “fashionable paranoia“. He has been published in several adult manga magazines, gaining him considerable popularity. Many of his manga have strongly satirical overtones, and deal with grotesque subjects such as extreme sex, scatology and body modification.

He has also written Sci-Fi non-guro manga, most notably Super-Conductive Brains Parataxis for Weekly Young Jump. Many of his shorts are experimental and bizarre.
