Film 4 Phobia is an interactive film festival concept, that combines cinema and horror, to create a unique festival experience. Phobia takes over the notorious festival 'Frightfest' and provides the real fans of horror and cinema with a festival that acts as
an umbrella for sub genres in horror. Phobia will host a festival once a year during the week commencing over Halloween, each festival themed around a different sub genre - a different phobia. The festival celebrates and pays tribute to the best horror features that encapulate phobias, many of which are films that are never showcased on the big screen. Each year the festival is hosted by a different venue in the UK, a venue made fit for the particular phobia. The first installment and debut of Phobia is the fear of the unknown.
From the off you must use your flashlight and guide yourself towards refreshments, toilets and the screening itself by following the signs and sounds echoing around the venue. There is no film guide, there are no stewards and there are no lights. Phobia hosts 1 film a night, each located at a different screening plotted around the venue. The first installment of Phobia digs deep
into the phobias of achluophobia (fear of the dark) and Xenophobia (fear of the unknown) giving its audience a physical and testing experience.
