Indie Scream Queen Contest!!!
We're entering our 3rd year this October, and are looking for the ultimate Indie Scream Queen to help us celebrate!!
If you think you have what it takes to be our next Indie Scream Queen, tag the Northern Frights Festival and Gore Noir Magazine on Instagram or Facebook to enter. We'll pick our finalists, and add them to the site, where we'll open it up to the public vote!
The winner will be deemed our 2017 Indie Scream Queen! We'll send you a shirt, we'll show your video on the big screen during the festival, and provide you with mondo promotion. And, we'll feature you in a full page ad in Gore Noir Magazine!!! A killer way to promote yourself and your projects! How do you like them apples?
How to Enter:
1) You must have appeared in at least one horror movie (or an upcoming horror movie. Of course short films are fine, we love shorts!)
2) Follow the Northern Frights Festival on
and / or
3) Post a picture or video of yourself on Instagram or Facebook and be sure to include these hashtags:
3) Tag @northernfrightsfestival and @gorenoirmag
That's is! That's the steps to enter!
The Northern Frights Festival will then pick 10-15 finalists (if we get avalanched with applicants, that number will rise), who will be announced in mid to late August.
Then Phase Two begins...
If selected, you can send in five photos of yourself which we'll feature on our site. You can also send in an acting reel, or some clips of your work in horror as well. We'll also need you to make a short video (30 seconds to a minute long), that promotes the Northern Frights Festival.
(You can use this promo video as your horror clip, as well!)
We'll share these videos around, and post them on the site! An awesome video will definitely help you to win!
We'll leave it up the audience to vote, and announce our first Indie Scream Queen in late September or early October!
You do not have to have a film submitted to the festival to enter. We love horror, and we love indie film, and think this is a cool way to cross promote our festival with your work! There is no cash value to this contest, just glory, honour, and promotion!
The above photos feature some amazing actresses from some equally amazing horror movies. In no way are they, or the studios involved with those films, affiliated with our contest. They just really help to illustrate our point.
