The Triple Six Film Festival is the brainchild of Andy Deen, owner of UK Horror Scene, and Chris Barnes, owner of The Slaughtered Bird. We decided there was a need and a passion for a new horror film festival in Northern England.
After months of planning we have partnered up with AMC in Manchester and our debut festival will be on May 27th & 28th, 2017, over the bank holiday weekend!
Set in the iconic Great Northern Warehouse in Manchester, AMC is a 16-screen, state of the art cinema complex and we will be taking over one of the screens for two days to bring the best in independent horror and much more. Manchester is the beating heart of Northern England with amazing shops, restaurants, numerous cultural and historical buildings and areas.
Our aim at Triple Six is to highlight the amazing talent across the horror genre and over the two days we will be showing 9 feature films and 9 short films. On top of that we will have special guests, Q&As, an after-festival party and much more.
We open submissions on September 1st exclusively through FilmFreeway and this will run until March 1st, 2017. There will be awards for Best Short Film, Best Feature Director, Best Feature Film and Audience Choice Best Feature Film!
We want to make Triple Six an interactive experience where fans and filmmakers mix in a relaxed and vibrant atmosphere. We also aim to make Triple Six as cheap as possible! There will be no early bird prices, just permanent cheap weekend, day and individual film prices! Tickets will go on sale on April 1st, 2017!
Triple Six is run by horror fans FOR horror fans!
See you at AMC in May for a celebration of new, independent horror cinema on the BIG SCREEN!
