13 MINUTES WINS THE 2022 RONDO HATTON HORROR AWARD FOR 'BEST SHORT FILM'
Friday, June 30, 2023
NYX HORROR COLLECTIVE is thrilled to announce that our 2022 anthology, 13 Minutes of Horror: Sci-fi, is the official "Best Short Film" winner of the 2022 Rondo Hatton Horror Award!
The Rondos are frequently cited as "the horror Oscars" within the entertainment industry, making this honor all the more special for us and our filmmakers. Additionally, 13 Minutes was the only women-led project nominated in the shorts category, highlighting the importance of the 13 Minutes of Horror Film Festival and our efforts to amplify woman-identifying and non-binary filmmakers.
We remain immensely proud of our 2022 filmmakers and their shared accomplishment:
Robbie Barnes and Devi Bhaduri
Carla Grace Fajardo
Sadie Walton and Meaghan Morris
While our team was unable to attend the live awards ceremony at the 2023 WonderFest Convention in Louiseville, Kentucky, we were able to prepare a video acceptance to thank our partners and filmmakers—watch it below!
As we celebrate this honor and continue to plan for our expanded 2024 festival season, we are excited for what the future holds for us and other woman-identifying and non-binary creators in the horror space ... The future is bright!
13 MINUTES ANNOUNCES EXPANSION
Monday, December 5, 2022
NYX HORROR COLLECTIVE and 13 Minutes of Horror have had a fantastic 2022! We witnessed our second year of 13 Minutes with an extended run on streaming giant Shudder, launched our fellowship for woman-identifying horror screenwriters in partnership with Stowe Story Labs, and were even mentioned in Nerdist—twice!
We want to use this momentum in 2023 to explore how we can better serve our community. Our goal for the year is to plan for 13 Minutes’ growth and expansion, developing a wider platform with more options and more opportunities for our creators. This sadly means that 13 Minutes will be taking a hiatus in 2023, but we’ll be back in 2024, bigger and better than ever!
In the meantime, you can look forward to the 2023 Stowe/Nyx Horror Fellowship, which we’re also planning to grow and expand for 2024! The final deadline to apply for our 2023 Fellowship is January 22, 2023 at midnight Pacific Time, so be sure to submit your work for consideration.
We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize our growth and will continue to amplify woman-identifying and non-binary horror creators. From the bottom of our dark little hearts, thank you for supporting Nyx Horror Collective—we’ll be in touch!
