The HORROR OCTOBER 2017 FEEDBACK Film Festival was truly a great success.

The theme of the festival was “DOORS”.

Every film showcased had a “DOOR” part of the plot of the film!

NOTE: This was a showcase of the best HORROR films from around the world. Our 2nd HORROR Film Festival for the 2017 season.

There is a lady who attends almost every single film festival event we do in Toronto. She is in her 60s, and has worked full time as a real estate agent for many years, while seeing her city change drastically through her job.

She lives in a condo building across the street from the cinema we’ve been doing the festival for the last 4+ years and happened to come across us after seeing a “WILDsound FEEDBACK Film Festival” on the marquee from her window. She wondered what that was and hopped across the street to find out. 34 out of the last 37 festivals later, she attends and usually brings a new assortment of people along with her.

She hates horror. Or at least she tells me that, eventhough every single time we do a horror festival she attends.

“I don’t like being scared, but I come for two reasons.” she told me after watching this festival.

“#1: The films are great from an artistic standpoint. There is such originality in the filmmaking. I am shocked how talented these people are and the things they come up with, but also the execution and genius photography that is always in the selected films.”

“#2: The audience feedback, especially for the horror/scary festivals. I learn so much and appreciate how and why people love horror so much. I was small minded in my thinking that horror was stupid, but this festival and the people have taught me so much. It got me out of my ideological bubble.”

I found her comments very interesting and a nice metaphor of thinking in today’s political climate. Always expand your bubble and watch HORROR while you’re at it!

See you at the festivals!

I just wanted to write to say how much I appreciated your notes on my script. These notes were clear, precise and objective. They will be of great help to me in improving the script. It is so rare that a competition sends something like this that I wanted to say thank you. A few times I have received notes from other competitions that so obviously didn’t even read the script that these were shocking at how amazing they were. Alright, I’m gushing at how great you guys are so I’ll stop. But seriously, very helpful and thank you.

Read reactions from recent writers and filmmakers who have had their work showcased at the Horror Festival.

I was delighted watching the feedback video! Short movies may be shown at several festivals, but it’s not every day that the creators of those shorts get real-time feedback from a live audience. It made me really happy. Thanks for that!
– Oliver A. Dubois (Short Film, 1500 Ninos)

Thank you for getting back to me and thank you for your comments. I have just finished a re-edit of the film to tighten the timings throughout the film and remove a few of the shots that should have gone at the first edit.
– Pete Tomkies (Short Film, TEAM)

The experience at the Horror Festival is always a great one! The feedback videos are a great tool to study and learn from and actually sitting in the audience during the screening gives alot of great perspective. Our upcoming short HEIR is Co-Produced by RED SNEAKERS MEDIA, a great Toronto Film team we had the pleasure of meeting at an event during the Festival run of our previous short WORM. I’ll always remember and credit WILDsound for that opportunity to meet new collaborators!
– Richard Powell (Short Film, Familiar)

Was influenced by a random tweet from the Horror Twitter account to join the contest. After putting off contests for years (I’m very self-critical) I decided to take a chance and enter the contest. I’m happy I did!
– Kyle Jenkins (Feature Screenplay, The Fix Factor)

The audience seemed to really like the film and that validates all the effort and creativity and sacrifices you make to bring something like this into reality. You hope what you create will connect with people and it seemed like my film did that. I also appreciate how smart the comments were. Folks really got into the spirit of what “The Blood Of Love,” is about, which is: How far would you go to hold onto the person you love?
– Jeff Meyers (Short Film, The Blood of Love)

I loved how professionally other scripts were performed at the festival WILDsound and wanted to have my script read as well.
– Alison C Hall (Short Script, Walk With the Devil)

I felt very honored and then curious to hear people’e reactions.
– Gina Lee Ronhovde (Short Film, Boudoir)
