    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Promoting British & International Horror Films!

    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!

We do this to enrich the life of the community, filmmakers and of course individuals who pursue careers in front of and behind the camera. By working directly with filmmakers independent of budget, origin, style or genre we celebrate the art of film and filmmakers in addition to:
    -Setting high standards for quality film education and exhibition, placing artistic and cultural merit above commercial appeal.
    -Working collaboratively with filmmakers and producers to increase access to quality film arts, presentations, programs, and projects.
    -Enjoy the art of Action on Film in all of its glory from the delicate movement of the wings of a butterfly to a blazing shoot out on the streets of an inner city.
    -The festival takes place in Theaters and in other professional settings such as the beautiful Pasadena Playhouse, there is nothing wrong with festivals that showcase films in other types of venues but we believe that we must give our filmmakers and writers the best venues to showcase their work as possible.
    - Over the years people have come to understand that Action On Film does not just mean action films it means the action the filmmaker takes to bring his or her dream to the screen and the reaction of the audiences to that work.
    -Oh yeah, we love filmmakers and writers too

    The Action On Film International Film Festival has been honored with being named to many Top Festival Lists both Domestic and Internatioinal. Perhaps it is the free video interviews, or Black Tie Dinner and Award Shows or just the great way filmmakers and writers are treated. Whatever the reason, the AOF Team is proud to be acknowledged by MovieMaker Magazine and for being placed in such high regard as some of the world's other top film festivals.

    CATEGORIES:

    • FILM SCORES & ORIGINAL MUSIC
    • FILMS (see all film categories)
    • WRITTEN WORKS (see all writing categories)

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    MOONDANCE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

    Our objective for this competition and film festival is to inspire, promote and encourage screenwriters and independent filmmakers, and the very best work in film & film scripts, stage plays, TV scripts, musical film scores, librettos, radio plays & short stories. Moondance provides a professional forum in which those creative, talented & dedicated artists can have the opportunity for their work to be viewed and accepted by the powers that be, within the international film & entertainment community.

    Our work on reaching out toward filmmakers, writers and film score composers everywhere in the world is primary and ongoing. Writers and filmmakers from all six continents, and from a wide diversity of ethnic and linguistic groups are an integral part of our mission and goals. We seek to inspire and invigorate this creative potential to perceive, conceptualize, and produce their works for the benefit of the world society. We are dedicated to preserving their accumulated accomplishments and visions as expressed through the art of film, music and writings.

    Moondance promises to raise awareness of the invaluable contributions of creative talents to the entertainment community. Equity in the film industry does not mean stifling some voices so that others may be heard; it does not demand the compromising of personal standards to achieve success. Equity creates new standards which accommodate and nurture differences. Equity fosters the individual voice, investing talented people with confidence in their own authority. Equity unleashes the creative potential. We see the equal treatment of all, and the equal respect for all responses they explore, as essential to their and our ultimate goals.

    Independent filmmakers, writers and composers are vocal and active participants in the social forces that shape our culture. They portray people as three-dimensional, complex human beings and thus defy the demeaning and pervasive stereotypes perpetuated by the mainstream media.

    We are also dedicated to promoting visibility for women in Hollywood and their impact on the film industry, and we see this as a means to disrupt and correct the misogynous, fantastical, passive, destructive and denigrating visual representation of females that has, historically, been rendered by men in media and has for so long and so plentifully pervaded our visual culture.

    Moondance promotes, encourages, educates and rewards non-violent conflict resolution in the arts & film. Our much-coveted Columbine Awards are given to the filmmakers, writers and composers (of any age) who best depict alternatives to violence as a method of dealing with conflicts, whether personal, local, national or international, and/or show why violence as a solution to conflict is ultimately counter-productive and inhumane.

    Moondance is dedicated to promoting environmental awareness and preservation, and we award the Calypso Award to those filmmakers, writers and composers who create meaningful, educational and entertaining works toward this goal, and inspire others to do likewise.

    Our mission is to entertain, to inform, to inspire, to encourage and to educate. We believe that films and scripts can contribute to a healthier society and that films and scripts should encourage the active involvement of audiences to connect and act collectively to address social challenges.

    Winning and finalist films and scripts are innovative, distinctive, compelling and engaging, relevant to varied audiences and encourage participation. We are eager to continue to be one of the most important film festivals in the world by being innovative, risk-taking, and open to new thinking, new concepts, new talent, and new ways of telling stories.

    Our film programs are always well rounded, entertaining, and enlightening, highlighting diverse cultures, opinions, and stories. We welcome individual expression and are committed to presenting diverse points of view. Moondance aims to entertain, increase awareness, provide multiple viewpoints, address complex social issues, provide forums for deliberation, and strengthen ties between a large variety of international audiences.

    The long-term vision of the Moondance International Film Festival is to preserve and revitalize our intangible heritage, cultivate creative diversity, develop an intercultural dialogue, and stimulate this creative resource. Our mission is to present a vibrant and growing collection of films and writings, which is an ideal means for communication across perceived boundaries of race, culture, age and gender. These works document the complexity and depth of men's & women's experiences that will become widely accessible within the world film industry and to the public, and will encourage and inspire others to write, compose music and to make films.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival is an International Film Festival with an emphasis on genre films. Our mission is two-fold: to bring the best Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Thriller, Animation, Cult and Fan Films from around the world to Buffalo, New York, and to shine a spotlight on quality films produced by local talent. We are a filmmaker friendly festival and wish to show our city in its best light and foster rising talent. In 2013, we screened 85 films, which broke down to 26 features, 59 shorts, 27 international films, and 13 local productions, and 30 filmmakers from out of town came to our city to screen their work. Our hotel is close to our venue, and there are plenty of restaurants nearby, not to mention Niagara Falls. In general, we provide two free passes to the entire festival for each film we select for screening, but for out of town filmmakers willing to travel to attend, we will provide additional passes. Western New York Films are not restricted to the categories listed above; to help our growing film community, we will also accept WNY comedies and dramas for consideration.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival is an International Film Festival with an emphasis on genre films. Our mission is two-fold: to bring the best Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Action, Thriller, Animation, Cult and Fan Films from around the world to Buffalo, New York, and to shine a spotlight on quality films produced by local talent. We are a filmmaker friendly festival and wish to show our city in its best light and foster rising talent. In 2013, we screened 85 films, which broke down to 26 features, 59 shorts, 27 international films, and 13 local productions, and 30 filmmakers from out of town came to our city to screen their work. Our hotel is close to our venue, and there are plenty of restaurants nearby, not to mention Niagara Falls. In general, we provide two free passes to the entire festival for each film we select for screening, but for out of town filmmakers willing to travel to attend, we will provide additional passes. Western New York Films are not restricted to the categories listed above; to help our growing film community, we will also accept WNY comedies and dramas for consideration.

We focus-group it with the audience, and our monthly guest industry moderator facilitates the audiences questions. This is a festival of networking and positive communication so you can take your filmmaking/screenwriting career to the next level.

    There is no judgment occurring in the moderation and the agenda is to have a 8-12 minute video of people talking positively about your film. (see our website for more details).
