Another year in horror and another year that the Fright Meter Awards will be standing up and paying attention to what the genre has to offer. As a committee member, along with my fellow members, we are currently on the look out for short films to be submitted to the new short film category. So if you, or someone you know has a horror short that is or will be available to watch this year, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
