Description: Currently in its 6th year, Jennifer’s Bodies is an annual festival in Scotland as part of the Women in Horror Month movement.

Jennifer Cooper says, “It is my goal to introduce people to the sheer scope of insanely talented women that work throughout the horror industry and to screen as many bad ass films as possible.

This year I have found the perfect venue, the Flying Duck in Glasgow and have partnered up with my makeup/SFX parnter in crime, Hayley Tinline of Hayley’s Horrors and Honeys MUA to bring a selection of films from women based all around the world.

To keep up to date with all the films we shall be screening, please be sure to like our Official Facebook page and check our blog too. “

Description: Since 2011, Jennifer‘s Bodies Film Festival in Scotland has continued to grow and grow…moving to a bigger location and venue each year.  🙂

February 2014 saw Starburst Magazine write a review of the festival, and they had THIS to say about the festival and its quirky founder –

Jennifer’s Bodies is a roving annual festival of female-helmed horror movies and part of Women In Horror Recognition Month, an international assortment of affiliated events organised partly to highlight just how much women can and do contribute to the genre outwith the typically accepted factors of tits, ass and mezzosoprano screaming.”

“The event was hosted by Jennifer Cooper, a genre fanatic and tireless promoter of indie horror. Opinionated, verbose and engaging, she has the all the nerdy enthusiasm of Felicia Day, the encyclopaedic knowledge of Quentin Tarantino, the effortless charisma of Jennifer Lawrence and the warped humour of Eli Roth. Or to put it another way, she’s basically an amalgamation of Jen and Sylvia Soska. She also possesses an amazing ability to link anyone and everything to The X-Files along with an unabashed fixation with Jeremy Renner, both of which were frequently demonstrated.”

This year, due to the opportunity to have Miss Tristan Risk herself come along, Jennifer‘s Bodies has bled into March. The festival shall beheld on Friday 6th, and Saturday 7th March 2015, with special guest Tristan Risk…and more to be announced shortly!

Tickets are free and served on a first come, first signed up basis, with a suggested donation of however much you can afford to be donated to Beagle rights charity, Unite to Care.  A UK based charity working tirelessly to ensure the compulsory retirement of former lab Beagles into a loving environment!!
