A group of Charleston based filmmakers/actors are putting together a film challenge that asks filmmakers from all over the world to submit a horror film with an exact run time of 60 Seconds.  Are you up for the challenge?

  100% of the profits made from submission fees will go towards the Charleston Animal Society to help their rescue efforts.

Screening Info

The live showing will take place at Frothy Beard Brewery and will feature the 10 best films in six sub-horror categories (Comedy, Thriller, Out of this World, Slasher, Gore, and Monster) selected by celebrity judges beforehand.  Then, the audience will get to pick their favorite film in each of the sub-categories, then the winners of each sub-category will be played again to let the audience choose their ultimate favorite, awarding this winner the "Best in Show."
