【The 2nd Mizonokuchi Short Horror and Suspense Film Festival 2024】

【The 2nd Mizonokuchi Short Horror and Suspense Film Festival 2024】Call for entries✉️

For all of you who love and love horror and suspense movies.This year, the event is back again!

Last year, we received more than 30 submissions from all over the country for this year's festival, which was held online, and it was a great success.

This year's edition has been further upgraded!

The jury will include the president of a video production company and an actor with ties to Kawasaki City, and the Mizonokuchi Theater in Mizonokuchi, Takatsu-ku, Kawasaki City will provide special support for the theater version of the festival. In addition, various media outlets in the prefecture will also provide support!

In addition to the Grand Prize and the awards in each category,Special Actor Award and Audience Award" were newly established this year!

We have evolved the finale of the festival into a special event that includes the "Award Ceremony," where the finalists' films are actually performed in front of the audience!

💡The purpose of this film festival🎞️

The day when I was a student, I gathered my few friends who liked horror and suspense and formed a circle. That day when we rolled the camera night after night, even though it made us feel weird. My sweet and sour youth was always spent in front of abandoned buildings. I spent more time watching horror movies with my friends than I did with my girlfriend. The "2nd Mizonokuchi Short Horror and Suspense Film Festival 2024" is a maniacal film contest in Japan, presided over by Studio Start Creation, a video production company created by a horror film lover who became an adult!

If only someday I could get my original horror films seen in front of a large audience. I have made my own original horror film as an adult, as a dream of my youth when we talked about such a dream.

Unautre Cinema
Unautre Cinema
Mar 23

La genèse d’ Unautrecinema remonte à divers mouvements et moments de l’histoire du cinéma, où cinéastes et artistes cherchaient à rompre avec les contraintes des récits traditionnels, des pressions commerciales et de l’esthétique conventionnelle. De la Nouvelle Vague française au néoréalisme italien, du nouveau cinéma allemand aux mouvements d'avant-garde à travers le monde, chacune de ces périodes a contribué à la vaste tapisserie dans laquelle s'inspire Unautrecinema. Ces mouvements étaient unis par un désir commun d’explorer la condition humaine, de remettre en question les normes sociétales et d’expérimenter le langage du cinéma de manière radicale.
