Is there any person or organization who is connected to horror -- magazine, production company, website, convention, filmmaker, fan -- who isn't sponsoring a horror film festival?
Apart from Fangoria magazine's new film festival, we now learn that Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine is sponsoring its first film festival -- the Imagi-Movies Film Festival.
The schedule seems composed of horror classics. I'm not sure if they'll accept new films for their 2012 festival edition.
For a behind-the-scenes look at horror film festivals and the festival directors who manage them, see Horror Film Festivals and Awards. This book also includes a directory of over 200 horror film festivals, and a list of festival award winners from dozens of festivals over several decades.
