In the Spotlight today is the 3rd Annual Nightmares Film Festival(NFF), a premier genre festival dedicated to #BetterHorror, with a reputation for assembling one the most prestigious programs of horror, thriller and midnight films and screenplays the world over.Bloody Disgustinghas reported the Fest as, “Among the best genre film festivals anywhere.”

Nightmares is the site of an annual pilgrimage of the top genre filmmakers, screenwriters and their fans to Columbus, Ohio, USA for whatDays of the Deadcalls, “possibly the best four days of programming, ever.” Screenings are hosted at the world-renowned Gateway Film Center, a top 20 North American art house theater. There, with a dedicated projectionist and tech team, films are presented with expert theatrical care to enthusiastic crowds lovingly known as 'The Sleepless' for their commitment to marathoning the program.

Nightmares is watched carefully by press and other festivals, with its program influencing selections for the next year. Standout filmmakers like James Quinn (Flesh of the Void) and Brooklyn Ewing (She Was So Pretty) were first identified and championed by NFF. Patrick Sebes, Nightmares alum shares, “'I traveled from Los Angeles, and living there has allowed me to attend many fests, but NFF to me distinguished itself from all those others...the awards ceremony had a packed theater full of strangers for me, yet I felt like it was a family. I'll definitely submit to NFF again.” Filmmakers leave the Festival with new partnerships and a year-round network that leads to new projects, industry connections and, for many, distribution. Because of the Festival's reputation for presenting an inimitable shorts programs,Bloody Disgustingoffers all selected shorts home and online distribution through its showcase channel, World of Death.
