Horror Roulette

A Coincidental Engagement is returning to London at the Romford Horror Film Festival, although not as an official selection.

It will be screened as part of a new featured called Horror Roulette. Essentially, an open mic night for films.

The catch: makers of the film must attend in person.

The perks: once screened, the film will receive Official Selection status, be given feedback, and may win one of three awards voted for by the audience.

We just need to be there on Friday 1st March at 8:30pm.

Here’s hoping climate change will be kind for that weekend.

If you’ll be attending, come say hello.
