Long Island, NY - January 16th, 2013 - TwitchTwitch Productions presents Long Island’s only film festival catering to the horror, suspense, thriller genres. The Fest will showcase independent films from around the world for the 2nd Annual Macabre Faire Film Festival and unite filmmakers, actors, producers and horror fans under one roof for 2 days of movie madness and awards.
The Macabre Faire Film Festival takes pride in being the FIRST and ONLY Film Festival on the Island working hand in hand with Long Island’s very own MonsterChannel.tv live streaming program with over 20,000 viewers monthly. This winter’s Film Fest will include English subtitled shorts from Spain as well as films from Canada, UK, Ireland and the USA. There will also be a special presentation of Twentieth Century Fox “House at the End of the Street” directed by Mark Tonderai as well as "Bereavement" directed by Stevan Mena.
The Macabre Faire Film Festival will feature hours of independent films submitted by dozens of filmmakers from across the globe for their opportunity to have fans and other filmmakers alike embrace their on screen work(s) in 3 separate screening areas. The doors are open to press, fans, filmmakers new to the game as well as the more seasoned ones & students. Students are encouraged to not only submit their films to future Macabre Faire Film Fests but to attend as patrons because doing so will provide them a chance to not only view festival circuit gems but to speak one on one with our special guests. They can obtain a more in depth understanding of the independent film industry from different perspectives that ultimately result in the same outcome; Filmmaking. For those who are inspiring to be actors then there could be no better place than here to meet the director of what could be their first or next movie role.
