Arrow Video has become the new sponsor of Frightfest, which has previously been sponsored by Film4 and Horror Channel. The film distributor and festival (which runs mini events throughout the year) yesterday signed up to a one year arrangement.

"As a long-time fan of FrightFest, Arrow Video are incredibly excited to be partnered with FrightFest for a year-long sponsorship," said Arrow's Brand Marketing Manager, Mike Hewitt.

"FrightFest is thrilled to welcome Arrow Video into the fold as our new headline sponsor. They have been a passionate supporter for many years," said Frightfest co-director Ian Rattray. "We are delighted to welcome Mike and the rest of the Arrow team onboard to celebrate the horror fantasy genre on an even wider canvas than before, something followers of both of our brands will appreciate."

The next Frightfest festival will be held in London from 23 to 27 August.
