The IHS Indie film showcase
We have launched the Indie Film Showcase to do what we love best: bringing incredible short genre films from hugely talented filmmakers, to the wonderful UK horror community.
Our annual flagship showcase event takes place in the spring in London, where a brand-new line up of short genre films are screened for the first time.
This same roster of films is then taken ‘on tour’ around the UK, giving people outside of London the chance to see them too.
Our Next Showcase: 6th july - manchester
Our 2023 Short Film Showcase events started in London back in April, and now we’re hitting the road again!
So please join us at the 53Two theatre on Watson Street in Manchester for a night of fun, meeting new friends, networking, and of course, over 2 solid hours of incredible short horror films.
(Please note: standard IHS Members can get tickets for £10, and IHS Pro members get them for just £5. Please see our member hubs for the codes!)

Our 2022 showcase kicked off at the Hen and Chickens theatre, where we were able to screen some truly incredible horror shorts.
