Scotland! Edinburgh’s Dead by Dawn Fest Returns with a Vengeance!


Dead by Dawn International Horror Film Festival returns for its 24th year with 49 films over four days

Dead by Dawn is the UK’s longest-running genre film festival and celebrates the finest in independent filmmaking. And now,  in their 24th year (!) the fest’s desire to unearth new talent is stronger than ever. The fest runs from April 20th – 23rd.

Screening at the home of Edinburgh International Film Festival, Filmhouse, Dead by Dawn is showcasing 49 films from 14 countries in this year’s programme. At Dead by Dawn it’s all about the story, about fresh ideas and perspectives; we focus on filmmakers reinvigorating the horror genre with vibrant, unique films.

Dead by Dawn Festival Director Adele Hartley said, “In 24 years Dead by Dawn has grown from a one-night indulgence of genre classics into a four day festival devoted to shining a light on debut and emerging film-makers.  We’re proud to have introduced so many amazing directors to Scottish audiences – the likes of Neil Marshall, Jim Mickle, Alexandre Aja, Jaume Balaguero, Mike Flanagan – and this year’s selection showcases yet more exceptional talent.”
