Festival start: 10 February 2023      Festival end: 16 February 2023

Night Terrors Film Festival is a genre festival for short films horror, thriller, supernatural, absurd - anything you can think of. Now open for submissions for the eight season in 2023.

We do not give out waivers and do not accept unsolicited submissions!

Films selected will be screened in Copenhagen and Aarhus in Denmark on two seperate occasions - unless COVID-19 prohibits it in which case a later date will be found. It is a great opportunity to have your short films screened for a Scandinavian audience that might not have other ways to experience your work. We accept short films with a max of 20 minutes. The screenings will have a lot of guests from outside Denmark aswell, so it must be either English language or have English subtitles provided.

Please note that if your film is selected we cannot provide travel and expenses in case you wanna visit the festival. We are not in this to make money, the low entry fee is only there to cover expenses the arrangers will have and to ensure the seriousness behind your work.

All films selected will be considered Audience Award nominees and by the end of the festival the audience can individually vote for their picks for best three films. All winners and nominees will be announced via the festivals homepage and IMDb (if your film has already been listed in advance) shortly after the festival. Both film and director will be mentioned.

By submitting your film and paying the entry fee you agree to allow Night Terrors Film Festival to screen your film. Night Terrors Film Festival obtains no rights other than that and you keep all rights to your work.

I understand that the festival cannot provide travel and expenses if your film is selected and you want to visit one of the screenings. I also understand that there is no cash prices or physical award trophees for winning films.

Please do not contact us for entre fee waivers. Our entry fee is very low and accomodating and a complete neccessity in order for us to run this festival!
