The gates opened..

This is a great place to add a tagline. the summer of 2011, when filmmaker Kristopher Phipps created Garth Manor Cinema. 


It began as a small group of filmmaking friends working together to create some silly short films and simply be creative while hopefully growing as storytellers along the way.

In a few years time, Garth Manor had produced several award-winning and critically acclaimed shorts which have screened around the world.

Shorts such as The Dark Walk Backward, Death Metal, The Last Delivery, We Summoned a Demon, and Guts, earned praise from major film and entertainment publications such as BIRTH. MOVIES.  DEATH.,


To date, Garth Manor shorts have been awarded a total of 147 festival prizes and multiple Vimeo Staff Picks.



It's Alive!

This is a great place to add a tagline.

We began doing live events in 2014 as way to connect with other movie fans and filmmakers.

These interactive events include revival screenings with celebrity guests, live concerts, and public Q&A's with groundbreaking filmmakers and artists. 


These events quickly blossomed into sold out shows at the Alamo Drafthouse and the historic Texas Theatre.

We soon created the "Young Blood Filmmaker Showcase" to help promote young and emerging filmmakers by screening their short film projects and introducing them to packed theater crowds.

Garth Manor's  growing connection to  independent horror fans has alway been our top priority. We are fans first, and our proudest moments have always involved fellow fans that we can celebrate with.

We continue to work on creating unique, interactive events for movie, music, and art lovers with a taste for the macabre.


This Monster is Unstoppable!

Over the past decade,  Garth Manor has achieved MONSTROUS growth, from a small group of amateur, short form filmmakers, to a collective of professional storytellers whose focus spans a variety of mediums.
