The 7th Annual Women in Horror Month is Coming February 2016!


Graveyard Shift Sisters is always proud to be a part of February's exciting Women in Horror Month festivities. This year, we wanted to begin by giving those who may not be familiar with the movement, an overview of its history, what to expect, and how you can take part!

What is Women in Horror Month?

Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.

WiHM celebrates these contributions to horror throughout the year via the official WiHM blog, Ax Wound, The Ax Wound Film Festival, and with the official WiHM event/project database in February. This database (http://womeninhorrormonth.com/events)—in conjunction with the WiHM social media fan base—actively promotes do-it-yourself annual film screenings, blogs/articles, podcasts, and any other form of creative media with the ultimate goal of helping works by and featuring women reach a wider audience.

This inclusive and positive movement is open to everyone, just as we believe the horror genre should be.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is WiHM an official non-profit organization?

WiHM currently a grassroots initiative. This does not mean that WiHM will not try to earn
501(c)3 Non-Profit status in the future.

Does WiHM offer financial assistance for projects or events?

We do not offer financial assistance at this time. WiHM is organized by volunteers and relies 100% on donations from supporters like you. However, this may be something WiHM considers in the future.

How do I get my event/podcast/blog series/etc. listed on your website’s database?

Please visit our “Submit an Event” page (http://submit.womeninhorrormonth.com) to enter your information.

I’m a female filmmaker/writer/artist. Will you share my work on your website?

WiHM is not currently posting work from artists, but Ax Wound, the official WiHM blog, will soon be taking submissions from creators and blog writers. Stay tuned to Ax Wound for more details about how to send your work.

Is the Twisted Twins Productions’ Massive Blood Drive an official part of the WiHM Organization?

Yes. Every year Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska produce an original Women in Horror Month PSA encouraging you to face your fears and donate life-saving blood. While the official PSA is done every year, we highly encourage you to pick up a camera and take this
opportunity to make a short blood-filled PSA all your own. Send it to us, and we will include it in our official WiHM Blood Drive PSA Film Festival and year-round gallery. Donate blood.
