2012 Buffalo Screams Schedule

 

Below is the complete schedule for Buffalo Screams Horror Film Festival, which runs October 17th – 21st at the Dipson Market Arcade Theatre.  Our opening short film will be DUMMY, written by the late horror author Michael Louis Calvillo, and our opening feature will be BLOOD FOR IRINA, written and directed by Chris Alexander, the editor of FANGORIA magazine.

 

This year, we have 17 blocks of programming – our most ever!  A “block” generally consists of one short and a feature, or two shorts and a feature.  In many cases, attending filmmakers will conduct Q&As; these sessions are conditional upon filmmaker availability.

 

Our Honorary Chairperson is Debbie Rochon; our Genre Sprit Award recipient is Rochester filmmaker Chris Seaver; our distribution guest is Paige K. Davis from POP Cinema; and our filmmaker guest is Sam Qualiana, who will screen SNOW SHARK: ANCIENT SNOW BEAST/

 

It’s going to be a great festival!
