VISCERA 2008 Film Festival
A Festival Just for the Chicks
Deadline: December 31st, 2008
The VISCERA Film Festival, a fest produced by horror production company the Chainsaw
Mafia, is currently accepting submissions for 2008. VISCERA is a Film Festival for women
directed/produced productions with an emphasis on women only productions.
VISCERA's Film Festival Director, Shannon Lark, created the Festival after getting a group
of her friends together to make a film. "VISCERA is intended to help beginning female
horror filmmakers jump into the gigantic bucket of blood and guts, get their feet wet, and
really find out if it's a career choice they want to make," says Lark.
To maximize the potential of each Filmmaker, VISCERA hands out an annual VISCERA
Award, a monetary prize of $200, to one production consisting completely of the female
gender. Other awards include internet distribution and the several Sponsors and Film
Festivals that have teamed up with the Chainsaw Mafia to promote the films and the
Artists. Website Sponsors are currently viewing the VISCERA 2007 DVD, along with
Sponsoring Film Festivals viewing the films for a potential screening at their next festival.
VISCERA 2007, which is now available for purchase in the Slaughter Shop at the Chainsaw
Mafia includes the officially selected films Wretched, The Cleaner, When Sally Met Frank,
Out of Print, I'm A Little Teapot, It's My Birthday, Snake Pit, BRAINS, and Go Ask Alice.
