Purgatory Film Festival

Run by filmmakers, for filmmakers.

PURGATORYFILMFESTIVAL.jpg

Purgatory Pictures Ltd had been up and running for a couple of years now and, having travelled the world - taking our products to film festivals, we launched our own festival.  This has been running for a couple of years now with a team of six judges watching, reading and rating all of the submissions received! 

It might seem strange; filmmakers launching their own festival but, for us, we believe it is the most natural thing to do given our passion for films of all genres.

The Festival runs on a yearly basis during the second to last weekend of October. Close enough to Halloween that people are craving their horror but not on Halloween, ruining people's parties.

 

The dream is to grow it to a level where we invite traders to come down and join in too, turning it into a festival-convention although, that may be a while off at the moment.

The entry fees will always be kept modest to ensure costs are covered and all winners, no matter where they are in the world, will win themselves a physical trophy at no additional cost to their entry fee.

For transparency, the Film Festival will be run through filmfreeway
