We love this stuff!
First and foremost, thank you for considering our unique international film festival located here in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Thriller! Chiller! was established in 2006 as a way for us to discover and celebrate the kinds of films we were inspired most by as kids: The genre movie! Movies that kept us up nights with thrills and chills, developing our fascination and admiration for the craft of filmmaking. Movies that influence the films we make today.
Thriller! Chiller! searches for true independent spirit and vision in filmmaking. We want to show our community the love, excitement, and adventure of great independent genre movies.
We screen movies with their own voice and identity. However, this does not simply mean we accept just any reinterpretation of the latest trends in cinema or a re-imagining of the worst kind of genre bender Hollywood wouldn't dare remake. We want a story! We want to hear and be able to see what you are telling us with your movie. Substance and style is the key to playing at Thriller! Chiller!
We want to discover those filmmakers who are inspired to tell us a story.
Send us your best shot. We're listening.
Thriller! Chiller! We're proud to call a film a "movie."
