Scream Factory Presents: Mini Movie Massacre!





Welcome to the MINI-MOVIE MASSACRE, Scream Factory’s first horror short film & video contest where we search for emerging masters of horror, storytellers and budding scream queens!



Films submitted will be reviewed by our staff to ensure they meet company standards and guidelines (more details below). The submission deadline is end-of-day Sunday, November 17, 2013.  They will then all be uploaded simultaneously to the official Scream Factory TV YouTube channel on Wednesday, November 20, 2013 to be entered into the contest.


The two awards categories are:


Audience Award – Viewers will be able to cast their votes in the form of YouTube video likes, indicating their favorite submissions.  The votes will be tallied on Monday, December 2, 2013 at 9:00 AM PST, and the video with the most likes will be declared the winner.


Judges Pick Award – Video content is reviewed by a selected panel of Scream Factory judges and then one is voted on as their favorite.


Winners of each will be announced on December 2, 2013 via Scream Factory’s official website and social media channels. The Audience Award and The Judges Pick Award Grand Prize Winners will both receive a $250.00 Scream Factory catalog shopping spree.
