We pride ourselves on presenting the very best in independnet genre cinema and host a broad selection of movie premieres on the big screen. As most of the films we screen are yet to be released in the UK, attending Grimmfest allows you to see them first before they get released to the general public.
We cram as many premieres as we can into the four day fest, so be prepared for many hours of movie watching. But we suspect you may well discover your new favorite film. You’ll also get the chance to rate each film you watch, allowing the Grimmfest team to identify the Audience favorite, which is presented with an award.
Grimmfest is a very welcoming film festival with many regular attendees as well as returning guests. There is no sense of “Us and Them”. We pride ourselves on our approachability, and on creating an inclusive, almost family atmosphere. If you are new to Grimmfest, you’ll definitely quickly make new friends from within the attendees and the extended Grimmfest team and volunteers. We are all members of the Horror Community, and this is a chance to get together, swap stories, experience the best of contemporary genre cinema, and socialise. Everyone is keen to discuss the selected films, often over a beer or food.
