Whether you're a working professional or a young beginner, make a short (13 minutes or less) horror film and scare the pants off your competition.
You'll have enough time. This isn't a weekend production. Filmmaking begins August 4, 2020 and ends October 4, 2020.
You'll have 2 months to write, produce and edit your scary film. That's time enough to create an award winning film (read video) that could start you on the way to becoming the next Tobe Hooper or Wes Craven.
Here it is folks! Just what you've been waiting for, the 2020 Frightfilm Competition Kick-Off Announcement. Watch, then get to work!
You still have time to create a team and enter the competition. You don't need a big cast or crew to make a horror film.
July 1, 2020
As Frightfilm Competition 2020 continues, we want to make sure you have everything and everyone you need. First, remember that physical distancing should be part of your pre-production, production and post-production. You can have all the meetings you need via video conferencing. On location, remember to wear masks, plan out your shot composition and shot sheet to minimize the chance of exposure and wipe down the equipment. This year please think carefully about the size of your crew. Maybe a big crew with lots of separate positions and craft-services isn’t the best move this fall.
We also hope you take advantage of the Frightwrite Competition. We have a bunch of screenwriters creating scripts, one of which may be right up your “shadow filled alley”. Stay tuned here to find out how to work with them.
As things change we’ll post updates about Frightfilm here and on our Facebook page. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to send an email to email@example.com.
In the meantime, wash your hands, wear a mask and spread the word, not the virus.
The Fright Film competition, LLC, is a time restricted film event that will recognize outstanding filmmakers in the horror/scary film genre.
Awards will be presented to the Best Film of 2020 and to Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Screenplay and many more!
The goal of this competition is to make just one type of film, SCARY!
All submitted films must fit in that genre. Mixed genres (Horror/scary, Horror/comedy, Scary SCI-FI, etc) will be accepted. Films that do not fit in the scary genre will be disqualified from all awards, but will be shown at the screening event.
Are you a scary/horror film fan? Do you have ideas for the scariest film ever? Get inspiration by watching some of the 2019 films.
