Looking for the Ultimate Horror or Sci-Fi Fan

Big Bear Lake, California
March 17, 2011

The Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival is looking for the Ultimate Horror and/or Sci-Fi Fan to be a judge at their 2011 film festival.

“Filmmakers don’t just make movies for other filmmakers, they make movies for movie-goers as well,” says Chris Gaida, Director of Programming. “The Ultimate Horro-Fi Fan is a good way to reward a fan and allow them to be part of the festival experience. When we decided to create a new blend of horror and sci-fi, we knew we had to find those fans that best embody that brand.”

A Horro-Fi fan is someone who loves the genre of horror and/or science fiction; the kind of fan that knows the smallest part of trivia or minutia detail of a specific movie/title of that genre.

The contest begins Monday, March 21, 2011.

The basic concept works like this:
1) Take a video, no longer than 2 minutes, and tell us why you think you should be the next Ultimate Horro-Fi Fan.
2) Be creative.
3) Submit the video and the submission form to us.

All entries will be uploaded to the website. The video that gets the most votes will win. It’s simple and fun. The complete guidelines and submission form can be found on the website at

Jamie Kristen, Founder and Co-Producer of the Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival says “We look forward to this contest every year. We feel that including a fan to be on the judging panel adds diversity and a unique perspective.”

The 2011 Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival dates are September 30th - Oct 2nd in Big Bear Lake, CA. Submissions are now being considered for competition. For more information please visit the festival’s official website
