LITTLE LAMB played to a full house at the inaugural Ax Wound Film Festival in Vermont this weekend. Festival Director Hannah Forman says the AWFF features a diverse selection of 34 short horror films directed by women around the globe. Some selections are high budget productions and others rock low budget DIY filmmaking skills, but each one brings an equal level of entertainment, passion, and scares across all our favorite sub-genres from zombies, slashers, supernatural, body horror, and beyond.
LITTLE LAMB will be screening at the MOTOR CITY NIGHTMARES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL between September 11 - 13th 2015. Theres a "star studded line up" of horror film celebs, workshops and panels plus a long list of films to be announced shortly.
