HOW IT STARTED Hellfire Film Festival was formed in 2014 by a group of creative individuals after realising that although Folkestone hosts many creative festivals throughout the year – including music, art, light, book and performance – there was no festival specifically dedicated to film.
WHAT WE'VE BECOME Since 2014 Hellfire Film Festival has grown into a multi-event organisation. Of the many events that have spawned, the Hellfire Short Film Festival has become our flagship. It is a highly successful monthly event that has attracted in excess of 3,000 submissions from three-quarters of the countries in the world including from Emmy award-winning directors. We also host the Hellfire HORRORfest at The Tower Theatre, Folkestone. The Hellfire Specials and Hellfire Classics events also showcase feature films, short films, documentaries and music videos old and new by filmmakers around the world.
WHAT IS THIS GOFUNDME FOR? In a nutshell we're looking for funds to improve our website. We hope to make hellfirefilmfestival.com not only an outlet to deliver our news to you but also a full learning resource for filmmakers of the future. We will have online courses, training videos and guest articles from filmmakers around the world. But we need your help to do it.
