Submit a short movie

This is an opportunity to view horror and sci-fi films already well-known and those created by up and coming stars. Visitors have the opportunity to meet various stars and directors. Past participants have included Patrick Rea, Todd Sheets, Courtney Gaines, Dee Wallace, Adrienne Barbeau, and the cast from Halloween to name a few.

The short film showcase will feature the best short horror/sci-first films from around the world.
