Finally I've managed to finish my report from the Dead by Dawn horror film festival
in Edinburgh this April.
In April this year a group of friends organized a trip to the Dead By Dawn horror film festival in Edinburg. This was a new festival to me, even though it has been going strong for 25 whole years already! Landing in Edinburgh the day before the festival, we got to see a bit of the city, and did the mandatory intake of Haggis and Whisky. Nice town, and by the look of it, a perfect location for a horror film festival.Read the full report
The festival is organized by Adéle Hartley, and takes place at the Edinburgh Filmhouse. A great location for this type of event, not at least because of it’s excellent bar. This became the natural place to hang out, mingle and get to know other enthusiasts between the screenings. The festival has a very personal and welcoming atmosphere. It’s a bit like this is Adéle sharing the films she loves with other horror and film fans. Given her enthusiasm for the subject and the taste and connections she obviously have, this is not a bad start. Add a great selection of films (a good mix of classics and new productions,) interesting guests and passion for the genre, and this was a weekend that could not go wrong.
