The Revenant Film Festival celebrates the worlds indpendent zombie films. The festival was founded in 2007 by Revenant Magazine founder Geoff Bough, a diehard horror fan who wanted to give creators a venue to showcase their talents. "I wanted to spotlight the independent vision of film making and give the opportunity for anyone to have an audience. We have been fortunate to see entries from all kinds of skill sets and all corners of the globe. It's an exciting time" says Bough.
The festival has seen some notable films, in 2009, we held the North American premiere of Colin, a micro budget film out of the UK that saw some commercial success and even garnered acclaim from Martin Scorcese. Other notable films include, ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction from Seattle based Typecast Films. A quirky zombie-comedy that tackles many social stigmas with some gut-busting hilarity.
It has been a lot of fun to put out a call for open entries for the Revenant Film Festival. Over the years we have seen films go in to production specifically for the festival. We had the intention of holding the festival in 2020 but the year had other plans. While we are still working on securing our venue and lineup, we also ask that people keep an eye out for our call for open submissions. Stay tuned and as George would say..."Stay scared!"
