The Viscera Film Festival is a non-profit effort dedicated to showcasing the fearsome creations of female filmmakers from across the world, with a mandate to create and expand opportunities for contemporary female horror filmmakers by raising awareness about the changing roles for women in the film industry.
“Viscera has been wanting to come to Toronto for some time now and Curio Media is thrilled to make this a reality, bringing this city's great film fans a truly unique showcase of new and emerging genre talents,” explains AdaPia d'Errico, Co-Founder of Curio Media Inc.
The two-hour Viscera line-up of short films will include “Aftershock”
“Fright Nights and Projection Booth have worked with some truly great filmmakers and projects, but to have an all-female line-up of directors laying down their work in one presentation is a rare treat for our city,” enthuses Stewart.
Tickets to the festival are $10, but for just $5 more, horror fans can also enjoy a special presentation of Karen Lam’s gory feature “Stained,”
