SCREAM it off SCREEN // December Short Film Competition
Any individual or group can submit a film they’ve created themselves. There are no genre restrictions (viewer discretion is advised).
15 short films will run, without interruption, for 3 minutes.
Once the 3 minute mark is reached, the audience will have permission to cut the film short, and collectively summon the gong to “scream it off screen”. If they like it, they’ll keep their mouths shut or fight for the right to “LET IT PLAY” against the “GONGERs”.
Gonged films will be disqualified from the competition, and crowd applause will determine the $101.01 Cash Prize Winner once all shorts have been screened.
Any individual or group can submit a film they’ve created themselves. There are no genre restrictions, therefore, viewer discretion is advised.
HOW TO ENTER:
We’ll accept 15 short film entries on Wednesday, December 4th, 7PM at the Turtle Bread Company on Chicago Ave. Instead of accepting submissions first-come-first-serve (like we’ve done in the past), we will be holding a lottery consisting only of the filmmakers who are at Turtle Bread at 7PM on Wednesday, December 4th. Therefore, no need to get there early, but if you arrive after 7pm, you will not be entered into the lottery.
To submit, bring your video on flash drive for us to upload. You can also email us a link to download at firstname.lastname@example.org, but you (or someone on your behalf) will still need to physically show up at Turtle Bread to be eligible. Only one film / person. The same film can only be resubmit if it was gonged at a previous competition and the filmmaker has re-worked it.
1. 15 minutes or less (no minimum requirement)
2. You own work (filmed/created by YOU)
3. No Commercials
