CARCOSIAN
FILM NIGHT

SEE YOU SOON


About

The Carcosian Film Night is a year-round short film festival, exploring the frontiers of the occult, cosmic and folk horror genres. Multiple screenings will take place in Belgium during the year, at different venues, according to its budget and participants.

From February until November, we aim to curate an impressive line-up every single Carcosian night. The first event took place in 2023. The night was a successful experiment at the Cinéma Galeries, right in the center of Brussels. Born from humble beginnings, we’d love to expand the Carcosian cinematographic territory, one year at a time.

The main themes? The occult, folk horror and cosmic horror. Our selection criteria is the challenging aspect of each short both in its visuals and storytelling. Dark and intense, socially relevant, borderline experimental, our audience can take it. Each program can feel like a descent into madness. Once you're selected, that’s it, you're part of the Carcosian Family and your film will be screened the year of its selection. Since the pandemic, many festivals have relied on streaming platforms to showcase their shorts blocks. We vowed to offer a physical venue to show your hard work, on a big screen.
