Submission 2023

In the festival year 2023, we once again received many submissions from all sub-genres of horror, whether short or feature films, whether low to no-budget or high-end slashers. Every year it is incredibly difficult for our jury as well as our programme team to make a final selection of the submissions. However, due to the large number of film submissions, we are able to present you with a diversity of horror film art every year and are already looking forward to the Fright Nights Horror Film Festival 2023. Be part of it, you won’t regret it.
In the Call for Entries 2024 you will once again have the chance to submit your films from the horror and trash genres. The deadline for submissions is 15th of June 2023, and our Fright Nights jury as well as the Fright Nights team are already scratching their nails waiting for your masterpieces of horror.
