    Bare Bones International Film Festival is dedicated to screening feature motion picture projects with budgets less than 1 million dollars. Our main venue is a historic theatre with a nostalgic atmosphere, The Roxy, one of the last ones remaining built in the 40s.

    Our philosophy is to promote and support the efforts of the small budget filmmakers and producers. We encourage comraderie among our filmmakers although it is a competition. Everyone is treated the same, so you will be treated as royalty. Red carpet premieres are standard, as are endless photo opportunities and media interviews. The Awards Gala recognizes the hard work you've put into your project, dress as you want, from tuxcedos to shorts, you decide.

    The festival's events and activities are a true spring break and networking opportunity for Actors, Writers, Directors, Crew along with Filmmakers and Producers. Small town experience in and around Muskogee, OK USA, will give you a break from the hustle and bustle of a big city. In Muskogee we are "a place where even squares can have a ball" as the lyrics in Merle's 1968 song says, so don't be surprised when everyone greets you with a smile and a friendly "howdy".

    The British Horror Film Festival is one of the most important and influential horror film festivals in the UK and has a rapidly growing international reputation.

    Our goal is to regularly grow the number of screens that the festival is screened on, simultaneously around the UK. We have been growing these screens since 2011 when we screened the festival on 2 screens, Bournemouth and London's Leicester Square.

    This gives your movie a chance to be seen by a wider audience and have a one day theatrical release in the UK, as well as a prestigious Leicester Square premiere/debut.

    We also have the 'Horror Awards'. These beautiful Crystal Awards are presented at the end of the festival at an awards ceremony.
    Previous winners of these prestigious awards have gone on to secure distribution deals in the UK and abroad. The 2013 awards were sponsored by Haunted: After Dark.

    Each film screened is nominated in at least one awards category and often many others.

    We are committed to increasing the profile of independent horror films and film-makers. A number of reviewers are present at all our screenings, to ensure you get plenty of global publicity, both on-line and in print for your film.

    Prepare to scream ... about films!

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    VISIONFEST: THE OTHER FESTIVAL (VF) encourages and promotes domestic filmmaking. With guidelines that exclude the submission of foreign entries and focusing exclusively on U.S. based product, VF remains one of the very few "domestic" film festivals on the East Coast. VF brings attention to the American independent filmmaker with the same enthusiasm and effort that most other film festivals spend on their own "international" entrants. The long-term VF goal is to bring the American filmmaker abroad and around the world by bringing VF product to other international forums and into the hands of global media and overseas audiences. The VF mission is supported and driven by the Domani Vision Film Society, which itself was created to bring American visionaries together in an effort to introduce their work abroad. Founded and curated by U.S. based filmmakers, VF is loyal and supportive to its participants and is always ready to bring forth their works for extended or additional exhibition opportunities by way of its ongoing, archival library. VF participants become part of a family... and a family that stays together flourishes together.
