The Witch and Fast Anchor Film Festival 2017

An opportunity for up-and-coming film makers to submit entries to this festival and perhaps win an award.

This site also features a review by Charlotte Haley of Robert Eggars’s current film The Witch: A New England Folk-Tale; Charlotte draws briefly on the categories of ‘horror’ and ‘terror’ that Ann Radcliffe delineated in the early days of the Gothic novel.  From this and other accounts, the film seems to be a Gothic and folkloric work of great merit: Conrad Runstedler (who gave a fine paper at the OGOM Company of Wolves conference) praises it in a detailed review here which does encourage me to see it.

    this looks like a must see thanks to Curtis’s review and Kaja’s first posts on this…witches continuing to dominate OGOM along with dark fairies….

      Witches are definitely the new black–I have other witchy things coming up to post. I should have linked to Kaja’s review, too, and will edit the post now.
