The Shock & Gore horror and fantasy festival returns in July 2014 with another bizarre and bloodthirsty programme, but our official 2014 short and feature film competition is now open for entries, as we search for the most exciting and innovative film-making from around the globe.

If you've got a short or feature film that you think would impress our audiences, then click on the link below to head to the Withoutabox website, which has all the details about how to enter this year's competition. If your short or feature is selected, you'll be invited along to the 2014 festival to see your film screened in front of an audience. Good luck!
