This year, AWFF will offer two days of over 45 short films, a filmmaker-in-attendance Q&A, and engaging presentations from leading women horror writers, artists, and directors, all at the Hooker-Dunham Theatre & Gallery in downtown Brattleboro, Vermont beginning on Friday, November 17th at 7:30PM with a filmmaker reception and the first round of shorts starting at 8:00PM and Saturday, November 18th, doors will open at 10:00AM for an all-day affair. The entire event is $20.00 with individual event prices for film blocks and sub-events at $10.00. Students who present valid ID get 50% off their purchase. Badges and/or passes will be available to buy at the door. Anyone who buys a badge or pass will receive one free month of the increasingly popular streaming service for horror fans, Shudder.
