The Misty Moon International Film Festival is back again this Halloween, for another year of fantastic indie films and will be held on Saturday the 27th October at London’s ‘The Cinema Museum’, a venue of significant cultural importance within England’s capital city.
We are looking for short films of all genres to be submitted but as it is near Halloween and our judges are made up of actors and actresses from well know horror films we would appreciate a smattering of short horrors as well.
The evening will be hosted by legendary comedy duo Trevor and Simon, best known for BBC1’s Saturday morning alternative comedy shows Going Live! and Live and Kicking.

For a generation of television audiences, Ian Ogilvy is The Saint.
Born in 1943, to theatrical parents – and with relatives who were
active in the Intelligence Services during World War II – he had a privileged
and occasionally odd childhood.
After attending RADA in the early 1960‘s, he went on to play leading
roles in countless television programs, including iconic series like I,
Claudius, and Upstairs Downstairs. Others (and they really are too
numerous to mention) include Miss Marple, Tom Dick & Harriet, Murder
She Wrote, Murphy Brown, Caroline In The City, Diagnosis Murder and
Early Edition. He played leading roles in London’s West End, in such plays
as Design For Living, Three Sisters, Happy Family, The Common Pursuit,
Rookery Nook, The Waltz Of The Toreadors, The Millionairess, Sleuth, Stage
Struck and Run For Your Wife. In Los Angeles, he has appeared in Sleuth,
Present Laughter, My Fair Lady and Love! Valour! Compassion! His many
films include Death Becomes Her (with Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn),
Witchfinder General, Wuthering Heights, Waterloo, The Sorcerers, We Still
Kill The Old Way, We Still Steal The Old Way and others. He has a TV Times
Award, three Los Angeles Dramalogue Awards, a Los Angeles Times Critics’
Circle Award and was nominated for an Ovation Award.
Ian has written two novels – Loose Chippings and The Polkerton
Giant . He has also published a play, A Slight Hangover. His latest venture is
writing children’s books. Measle And The Wrathmonk, Measle And The
Dragodon, Measle And The Mallockee, Measle And The Slitherghoul and
Measle And The Doompit have been translated into about 15 languages and
are published all over the world.
Ian’s autobiography – Once A Saint – was published last year. The
Daily Mail called it, “A wickedly entertaining new memoir.”
