6th Trash Film Festival

place: Varazdin, Croatia
The theme of this year's Trash Film Festival, to take place in Varazdin on September 8-10, is the western, festival director Tomislav Sipek said while presenting the sixth international festival of low budget, action, martial arts, science fiction and horror films.

Trash Film Festival is a festival of low-budget action movies.

The festival does NOT feature drama, documentary or art films, but exclusively entertaining films which can be put into one of the following categories: action, martial arts, science-fiction and horror. Exaggeration in genre attributes is desirable.

On the final evening, the festival award Golden Chainsaw is given to the best movies.

Trash Film Festival is much more than just a review- it is a large glam-trash event in which all present play role; guests, organizers, performers and contestants.

Great care is taken to organize concerts, kitsch parties and red carpet events.

The aim of the organizer is:
·    to enable participants to show their low-budget movies in a proper movie theater, to lay out red carpet for them and to reward them for their contribution to film magic
·    to give audience to see the most entertaining part of the recent low-budget output
·    to encourage genre film production in Croatia
·    to help “serious artists” to get back on path
