BITS 2023 HORROR DEVELOPMENT LAB
Applications for the 2023 Horror Development Lab are open on Film Freeway!
The BITS Horror Lab is a development program focused on facilitating business and production opportunities for genre (horror, sci-fi, action, thriller) scripted projects and short films by traditionally underrepresented BIPOC, women, and LGBTQ+ Canadian filmmakers and content creators.

"This is an amazing festival! It was such an honor to have my short 'Lunachicks' screen here alongside some really talented filmmakers! The communication and effort put into making this a great festival is very evident and it was one of the most fun festivals I've been to. I felt very welcomed and there was really great audience turnout and engagement. I recommend submitting to this 100% even if you feel your film is only borderline 'genre'."
"BITS is the best. Aside from screening the coolest genre films, their Deadly Exposure conference allowed me to meet, learn, and network with dozens of industry decision makers, potential distributors, and fellow filmmakers. I couldn't give this festival enough praise. I look forward to being able to submit another film!"
"My short screened in 35 festivals and this was one of the tops! I was also selected for their inaugural Horror Development Lab and connected with filmmakers and key industry players which will help get my creature feature made and give my career a boost. Highly recommend!"
"What a great all around festival filled with great films, great panels, great networking and amazing sharing of love of film!"
"Bits was by far one of our favorite festivals. Not only did we get to see our film in a theater with a live audience, we were also selected to take part in the Directors Lab and Deadly Exposure event. This experience was so unreal and has helped put us on the path to continue expanding our short into a feature. Thank you guys so much. We hope to take part again with our future projects."
