NFF: Masquerade is underway and we honestly couldn’t recommend it enough to get yourself hyped the weekend before Halloween. While only four days remain in the Nightmares Film Festival, there is so much you can still take in.
Seriously, this is the first Nightmares program where you can take in absolutely everything that’s on the program, so jump on it!
Keeping with tradition, the 2020 Nightmares program is overflowing with the unique mix of returning horror favorites, powerful new voices, and boundary-pushing stories FilmFreeway’s top-ranked genre festival has become known for. This year’s festival delivers 140 shorts, table reads from some of the 26 screenplay finalists, and Q&As over the course of the festival run.
Of particular note, we will also be expecting to see Gender Neutral prizes at this year’s Nightmares Film Festival, as was previously announced in August. Rather than “actor” and “actress” prizes, the festival’s coveted Night Mare statuettes will be awarded to a “lead performer” and “supporting performer” in both the features and shorts categories.
NFF: Masquerade will be presented on the secure streaming platform Eventive, where films will be available on-demand from October 21-25 to all North American viewers. Virtual attendees can pay as they go to watch individual blocks — say, a feature with a short film, or a set of themed shorts — or can buy a festival pass that gives them access to the entire program.
Now in its fifth year, Nightmares Film Festival has been named a top genre festival in the world by every leading outlet. It has been FilmFreeway’s top-ranked genre festival — and second-ranked overall fest out of more than 7000 — continuously since its founding.
