ABOUT FRIGHTFEST - FrightFest was conceived in 2000 to provide the UK with a horror fantasy film festival of similar stature to the worldwide market leaders and has since evolved into a community where audiences and guests alike travel from all over the world to be part of the event's unique atmosphere.


Now in its 21st year, FrightFest hosts three annual events plus many one-off screenings each year.  Along with the original August event that has grown into a five-day multi-venue festival, FrightFest also stages a Halloween extravaganza and hosts a regular three-day terror-thon as part of the Glasgow Film Festival each February.


FrightFest Presents, a multi-platform distribution joint venture with over 30 titles, has further enhanced the festival reputation and cemented it firmly as one of the worlds must attend genre happenings.
