After the launch of Grimmfest TV, more titles are being added to the channel every week, with two award-winning shorts landing today.
The new online TV channel dedicated to horror films of all types has been launched by Manchester’s Grimmfest, one of Europe’s most prestigious genre film festivals.
The channel includes features and shorts from the Grimmfest archives, which horror movie fans can access at Grimmfest.com/tv
Two new award-winning shorts are set to hit Grimmfest TV at midday today, Friday 1 May. Both shorts have previously had their UK premieres at Grimmfest.
Part body-horror, part ghost-story, Ben Steiner’s The Stomach has played at over 200 festivals, won awards all round the world and had its UK premiere at Grimmfest a few years back.
Mystery Box, a slick, stylish, mind bending ‘cabin in the woods’ movie from Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund, the amazing Swedish directing duo behind Puppetmaster: The Littlest Reich and Wither, had its UK premiere at Grimmfest 2018.
Speaking about Grimmfest TV, festival director Simeon Halligan commented, “Right now, it’s impossible to access cinemas or screening events in most countries, so we wanted to give something back to all of the amazing genre film fans out there, stuck at home. Grimmfest has been busy curating content that includes award winning horror shorts and features that premiered at recent editions of the festival. The films will be available to view for free, while everyone is in lockdown.”
The free online Grimmfest TV launched with a selection of 25 short films and 7 features including Grimmfest 2018 best short award winner, We Summoned A Demon, Grimmfest 2017 opening night feature, Habit (featuring Roxanne Pallett), Rob Grant’s horror comedy Mon Ami and the suitably virus themed La Contagion.
