FrightFest has showcased the best in genre short films from the UK and around the world since 2004, and this year is no exception, with eight countries representing four continents. From brooding rivalries to wicked encounters, from haunted houses to deadly bedtime stories, this year’s selection, screened at the Cineworld, Leicester Square, which includes thirteen world premieres, unleashes the latest from upcoming filmmakers worldwide. 

This year the strand is sponsored by CenterFrame, a global community of filmmakers. Hosting the event will be CenterFrame’s CEO and co-founder, Bernhard Pucher. CenterFrame is also presenting The Filmmaker Spotlight, which highlights exciting new talent within the CenterFrame community and will give four filmmakers the opportunity to screen their shorts before the main features. 

Pucher commentated: “It’s such a thrill to present the Pigeon Shrine FrightFest short film showcases, which highlights some of 2023’s best horror and fantasy shorts. Getting films to the big screen is what CenterFrame is all about, so we are equally proud to be part of FrightFest’s feature programme, where we have the CenterFrame Filmmaker Spotlight, showing four films created and chosen by our community."
