Press Release 

Drunken Zombie International Horror Film Festival

The fifth annual Drunken Zombie Film Festival is now open for submissions! We are celebrating our 5th year of showing independent horror films to a horror audience that is hungry to see something outside of the studio system that can tap into the horror life line and bring them a great experience they have been craving. We show all types of horror films and not just zombie films which some take our name to imply. So whatever type of horror film you have feel free to submit.

Our submission process is easy. Head over to the website, www.drunkenzombiefilmfestival.com, fill out the online submission form, and mail it off with your movie. It's that easy. No entry fees. No complex rules. If you want your horror film seen by an audience that is craving the next great horror film then this is the festival for you. We are looking for feature films, short films, music videos, trailers, etc. Anything you got we'll take a look at. The deadline for submissions is August 31st, 2012. Our film festival is taking place on November 2-3, 2012 at Landmark Cinemas in Peoria, IL.

Have your film Slay In Peoria! 

This is our fifth year running our convention and have had a great time showing off some films that have gone on to great success. Some of the past films we have shown are Dead Hooker In A Trunk (DZFF2010), The Taint (DZFF2011), Zombie Apocalypse (DZFF 2008), Trippin' (DZFF 2010), and The Selling (DZFF2011). We present a well rounded list of films from straight up scary to horror comedies to the full on surreal.

Praise For The Drunken Zombie Film Festival:

“The Drunken Zombie Film Festival is run by a group of diehard horror fans who's only desire is to help out indie filmmakers and that passion shines through in their treatment of your work, their interaction with you (the filmmaker), and their enthusiasm overall. I am very happy to support DZ as they have been more than supportive of my career over the years and are one of the reasons I have fans across the world.” Tony Wash – Director of It's My Party And I'll Die If I Want To (DZFF2008) and A Chance In Hell (DZFF2011)

“We had the distinct pleasure of having our film, "The Feed", screened at the 2011 Drunken Zombie Film Festival. Though unable to attend due to a work conflict, I had a number of people write to us saying how much they enjoyed the festival and our movie. Not only that, but a podcast was released shortly thereafter where a whole group sat around discussing the fest - and our film - in great detail! It was fantastic to hear. We rely quite a bit on social networking to keep our fans up to speed on our film's progress, and the 2011 DZFF, as well as their devoted followers, allowed us to post many, many updates. We look forward to submitting our next work as well as attending!” Steve Gibson – Director of The Feed (DZFF2011)

"DZFF makes a real effort to reach out to its filmmakers, in order to help them connect with each other and with industry. That's why I'll keep sending my films to DZFF. Also, their name is really cool." Chris Walsh – Director of Fitness Class Zombie (DZFF2011)
