The Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival (BITS) is taking the show on the road, bringing the best in Canadian Horror to four Ontario cities this Spring.

The lineups include some of the best alumni titles from the festival, new premieres, and other recent titles that have made an impact on the Canadian horror, with a spotlight on filmmakers from the local communities.

“We can’t wait to bring these awesome Canadian films on tour, and especially to give the local filmmakers a big hometown screening” Festival Director (and Peterborough native) Kelly Michael Stewart says. “We are thrilled to be able to champion Canadian and local filmmakers, and introduce them to an audience that may not have as much access to independent film.”
