Since its inception in 2010, Telluride Horror Show has established a strong reputation for programming the best genre shorts on the film festival circuit. The festival scours the world to find the "best of the best," and every year the numerous shorts blocks at the festival play to sold-out, enthusiastic crowds. From Ted Wilson, Telluride Horror Show festival director: "The talent and creativity we see in genre shorts is worth celebrating as much as any feature film. From the start of our festival, we've set the bar high to deliver the best short films we can get our hands on. A few years ago, Vertigo Entertainment took notice and has requested to view many of the shorts that have played the Telluride Horror Show, as they search for new talent and new genre projects to develop into feature films. In 2019, we've decided to officially join forces with Vertigo, combining our efforts to discover the newest talent in genre filmmaking."
"We're very excited to collaborate with Telluride Horror Show and discover exciting new voices in the genre space. The festival's programming team has great taste and a keen eye for pinpointing really amazing filmmakers. We've had a lot of success working with first-time feature directors that we've discovered through some incredible short films, and we have no doubt this partnership will facilitate many more relationships to come," Aengus McLoone, Creative Executive, Vertigo Entertainment.
Short films submitted to Telluride Horror Show will automatically be eligible for review by the team at Vertigo Entertainment. While there is, of course, no guarantee that short filmmakers will land a development deal or be considered for one, Vertigo Entertainment and Telluride Horror Show are eager to provide this opportunity for short films to truly serve as calling cards for genre filmmakers.
