From our happy alumni:
“Thanks to Bleedfesst, MORBID CURIOSITY has been invited to screen at All Things Horror in Massachusetts this coming February! Woo Hoo!! Thanks to Brenda Fies Elisabeth Fies and all of you amazing people!!! ♥ ♥” – Cindy Baer, MORBID CURIOSITY, Audience Award Winner December 2010
“It was fucking incredible. Seeing these wonderful films with such a great horror crowd was awesome — let me tell you, boys and girls, film making powerhouse sisters Elisabeth and Brenda Fies know how to throw a party. It was with great sadness that we packed our bags and headed back up to Canada after the fest. What an incredible opportunity to see and screen fantastic indie movies that often go unnoticed against the big studio blockbusters. From experience let me tell you, the ladies really know their horror shit. They are smart and they welcome you to the festival with a level of kindness and sincerity that makes you feel like family. It is a great event to showcase your work. This fast approaching December 5th marks the first of many upcoming Bleedfest, a bloody good time.” – Sylvia Soska, DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK.
“Thank you so much for all the support.” – Amanda Gusack, IN MEMORIUM
“I received word that one of my shorts will be played during Bleedfest’s February festival! An already huge honour was made even more so by the fact that February is Women in Horror month! Thank you Elisabeth Fies!” – Lori Bowen, ESSENGER, AFTERSHOCK
