Santiago Horror 2023: Legendary Serpents Wage Battle in Festival Poster Art
At the end of last week our friends at Santiago Horror revealed the key art this year's edition, happening from October 5th through 8th.
This year's poster features "Trentren Vilu and Caicai Vilu" which are legendary ancestral serpents of the Chiloé legends from south of Chile. Legend has it there was a fierce battle between two mythical snakes, an earth serpent and a water serpent, and that is how the geography of the Chiloean archipelago, a string of islands off the coast of Chile and mountains in the south were formed. Now they fight over the nation's capital. Neat.
The festival is now open for submissions as well. All international filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films to the festival via their FilmFreeway page.
