"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 2017 - Event and Submission Details!


Greetings horror darlings!  So it's that time of year again and Women in Horror Month is soon to be upon us.  This year Jennifer's Bodies shall be hosted in Glasgow at Blackfriars, a wicked little venue that is the perfect setting for all things horror.  I was actually there for the Glasgow Horror Festival in October and it was ace!

Sooooo, submissions....

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 and features, 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 year's festival, I will require a high-quality downloadable copy.   
  • Once you have been accepted into Jennifer's Bodies 2017, if you have any campaign materials then please to bung them in the post to me.  :) 
  • There is no charge for submissions. 
  • 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 24th 2017 and a full line-up shall be posted on January 31st 2017.
