"Blood in the Snow Film Festival has been an incredible supporter of my work, from shorts to being the Canadian premiere festival for my feature film "Evangeline." The atmosphere is fantastic, there was so much support and attention on the films, but most importantly, the festival has built a real sense of community in the Canadian horror scene. It's clear: the festival organizers love horror films and the filmmakers who make them. BITS connected me with the horror filmmaking community across Canada, and proudly shone a spotlight on our work. One of my favourite indie horror fests, hand's down!"
"Fantastic festival. Lot of great programs aimed strictly at the filmmakers - events and networking are great. Will happily spill some more blood on film to get on their program again."
"An excellent festival with a great mix of screenings and industry-building events. The industry panels were valuable and set up properly to allow enough time to get good information and then meet the panellists. Finally, the networking events were set up in a way to encourage meeting new people, and the festival staff went out of their way to facilitate those meetings. I look forward to coming back!"
"I've been to festivals all around the world of varying size and pedigree and what makes BITS special, outside of the fact that it rolls out in my home town, is the way they treat filmmakers, encouraging new talent, creating a fun, elegant environment where artists can collude and share their work. They have their act together and they not only care, they seem genuinely enthusiastic. It's infectious. This is an A grade show, spotlighting and celebrating films that are far removed from the A list. And best of all, every year it grows and improves."
"What a great all around festival filled with great films, great panels, great networking and amazing sharing of love of film!"
"I had a fantastic time at the Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival, made some lasting connections and hope to come back. High quality with low hassle and lasting connections."
