The second edition of STRANGER WITH MY FACE took place in February and March 2013, and aligned with International Women’s Day and Women in Horror Month.
In addition to a program of outstanding short and feature films, SWMF 2013 featured two production components that were open to both male and female participants: the 10 X 10 Short Script Challenge and the 48-Hour ‘Tasploitation’ Challenge. Another key component was the Mary Shelley Symposium, which includes talks and workshops by leading genre experts.
