ARROW VIDEO FRIGHTFEST NEW BLOOD CLASS OF 2021

This past year, as difficult as it has been for so many, has not dulled the creative impulses of our superlative group of New Bloodees. Judging by the quality of the almost 300 entries to this year’s scheme, the genre is in rich, confident and radiantly provocative hands for the foreseeable future. 
 
Alas, there is only a finite amount of entries we can take forward to the mentoring stage. For those who we were regrettably unable to select this year: thank you for your diligence, your talent and your commitment to bold and audacious storytelling.  

We are, however, delighted and deeply proud to announce that this year’s 8 writers/teams joining the New Blood alumni are: 

STRANGE TALES by Sunny King
DADDY’S LONG LEGS by Rebecca Wilcox
REFRACTED by Virginie Sélavy
THE RETREAT by Rishi Vaja M2 by Liam Gillies
CLAIRE DE LUNE by Violet Jones 
THE PISSING EVIL by Philip Poppy
DON’T TELL MUM by KT Roberts & Francesca Forristal 

We’ll be back for 2022 and, hopefully, one of these projects may be coming to a festival near you not so long after?
