Welcome to fear-a-thon!

Are you geared up to gorge on a nerve-jangling glut of ferociousness, disconcerting shocks, and bestial enjoyment? Come, get onboard for a diabolically tense ride, as India’s First and Only Horror Short Film Festival is back with its second edition.

Sixth Sense Horror Short Film Festival, the brainchild of Shaunak Sirrole – a filmmaker, was conceived with the ambition to congregate all horror filmmakers from pole to pole under one haunted roof and provide them the dais to unmask their talent in a genre which is less explored in a country like India.

Last year, the writer of “Final Destination”, Mr. Jeffrey Reddick was the “Guest of Honor” and Mr. Apurva Asrani, National Award Winning Indian filmmaker (Best Editing for Snip!) was the “Chief Guest” of the event. In the inaugural year, we received an outstanding 250 entries from which we screened 50 best films selected by the esteemed panel.

Making a horror film is only half the battle, it still needs to get in front of an audience, and that’s where Sixth Sense Horror Short Film Festival enters the picture. The dream behind inducting this festival in India is not only to prop up Horror Genre, but also present an exceptional juncture for filmmakers to generate enough ballyhoo and eyeballs to get sold — optimistically to a distributor that can put an adequate amount of marketing moolah behind it to transform to box office returns and even awards season buzz. When a film gets selected for Sixth Sense Horror Short Film Festival, its chances of being brought by a distribution arm shoots up.

So, what are you waiting for? Tighten your seatbelts and indulge in a global fête of an adrenaline-fueled genre. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. Welcome to fear-a-thon!
