Guest of Honour 2020, Mick Garris

Join us in 2020 as the Master of Horror invites you to screenings of some of his all-time favourite movies.

“In 26 years we’ve introduced so many amazing directors to Scottish audiences – the likes of Peter Jackson, Neil Marshall, Jim Mickle, Jaume Balaguero, Mike Flanagan, the Spierig Brothers, the Meza-Valdez brothers – and this year’s selection showcases yet more exceptional talent from all over the world. Dead by Dawn continues to treat fans to the very finest chills and thrills!“Adele Hartley, Festival Director
