"Jennifer’s Bodies is a roving annual festival of female-helmed horror movies and part of Women In Horror Recognition Month, an international assortment of affiliated events organised partly to highlight just how much women can and do contribute to the genre outwith the typically accepted factors of tits, ass and mezzosoprano screaming."

Jennifer's Bodies 2015 - Accepting Submissions of Features and Short Films NOW!!

So, after a successful 2 day event in Edinburgh in February 2014, Jennifer's Bodies is back for 2015, this time to be hosted in Glasgow.  Submissions are now open and here are the lines to guide you.

I have already pre-selected a number of films personally, so if you know yourself to be one of my personally selected films, you don't need to submit again.  If you're not sure, just gimme a holler!!

Soooooo......much like every year.....

Your feature film/short MUST be either directed, produced or written by a woman.  
  • All submissions must obviously be horror (doh!), be it psychological, zombie, ghost, revenge, slasher...as long as it is horror~ific...and if you're not sure, by all means, please do get in touch!  I also love haunting sad films that ooze melancholy and many of these can still be deemed horror of sorts.  It's all subjective to our own personal ideas I guess.  :)  

  • For submissions of shorts, if you could email me links to a private Vimeo/YouTube account with the password for me to view.  If I then accept your submission for this years festival, I will require a copy to be posted out on DVD/Blu-ray and/or a high quality downloadable copy.   
  • When emailing me, if you could include a basic synopsis of your movie, along with any campaign materials such as film stills, posters and trailer etc.
  • Once you have been accepted into Jennifer's Bodies 2014, when posting out your DVD, if you could also include any campaign materials in hard copies, such as postcards etc. for your film. This way I can display them at the event and it makes it easier for people to remember the names of all the things they've seen. 
  • Also if you have any other promotional items such as t-shirts, patches and what not that you'd like to send, I will be doing a giveaway and raffle at the event, with all funds raised to be donated to Beagle rights charity Unite to Care.  Also my boobs like to put your tees on them too.  They likes the coverage, moooahahahaha.  So T-SHIRTS for Morleysaurus BOOB coverage = GOOD!!  

  • There is no charge for submissions however if you would like to make a donation towards helping put the festival together, then that is most appreciated.  If you would like to help out with some of the costs, including that of advertising and making up a programme, then please let me know.  I do everything for Jennifer's Bodies myself and the costs do build up, so any help I can get is fab!! :)   

  • I will consider a feature/short that is not directed by a woman IF it is both written and produced by a woman and has a strong female lead performance.  
  • Every year I screen a film directed by a MAN that has basically taken on board all of the principles of Women in Horror Month.  Such as Jose Pedro Lopes, and Jeremiah Kipp; both previously screened at Jennifer's Bodies, due to their strong female empowered films.  If you are a woman and you feel that you know a guy who embodies everything that we stand for, get them to drop me a line. :)
  • All submissions are due by January 27th 2014. 
Email for submissions and more information - jennifersbodies@gmail.com

Details to include -

  • Name
  • Website/Facebook Page/Twitter/Tumblr/Instagram/Pinterest etc.
  • A Small Bio About Yourself
  • Short Description of Submission
  • Links to YouTube/Vimeo (other private video site)
