The 2009 Toronto Hispano-American Film Festival (THAFF) is adding shrieks and scares to its hot cinematic menu with a new late-night horror screening called "Noche de los Muertos" (Night of the Dead) on Friday November 6.

Supporting the THAFF in this special scary screening as co-presenters are two rising entities in the field of horror: Crypt Club Productions Inc. from Toronto and Latin Horror from New York City.

The aim is to showcase the best in Spanish/Latin American independent horror filmmaking so that THAFF fans can get some more red in their salsa.

Spread the word, and send in your feature and short indie horror films. There is no fee for submissions to the THAFF's "Noche de los Muertos". That's right, it's a FREE Submission.

  • A film in which either the producer, director, writer, or other key talent is of Spanish or Latin American background.
  • A film dealing with subject matter that concerns the Spanish or Latin American community.

The 12th edition of the THAFF runs November 2 to 8, 2009 following the traditional Latin “Dia de los Muertos” festivities. These festivities, held in Mexico and throughout Latin America, honour the departed with gifts of the departed's favourite food, drink, and music.

The THAFF is Canada's largest and longest-running Spanish/Latin American culture film festival with a spectacular selection of feature film dramas, comedies, and documentaries from Spanish speaking countries.
