The third annual Fear Fête Horror Film Festival has announced it has opened its early entry period for horror film submissions. During the early submission period, the festival invites all filmmakers from around the world to submit their independent horror films for free until February 15, 2013.

Fear Fête is Louisiana’s premier horror film festival, showcasing many of the world’s best independent horror films over the course of three nights in October. Baton Rouge, Louisiana will host the 2013 festival once again, showcasing short and feature length films in sub-genre categories of horror.

“We are stoked to be kicking off another year of offering film submissions for the 2013 festival. We look forward to seeing all the great films submitted and hope to smash another record for number of submissions once again this year,” stated Derek Morris, Executive Director for Fear Fête.

Films entered into the festival will be scored by a panel of industry luminaries, local filmmakers and horror fans. Selected films will be presented with awards at the Dead Carpet Party and be showcased during the three-night festival. Selected films will also be in the running for film awards, such as “Best Feature Film,” “Best Short Film” and “Best Micro-Short Film,” as well as individual awards like, “Best Director,” “Best Actor” and  “Best Actress.”
