Category Rules

Short film categories are subject to combination depending on the number of entries. The first combination will be within genres -- Mini-short and Short Fantasy will be combined if there are fewer than 5 entries in a category.

If there are less than 5 entries in a genre by length, it is possible that all genres in a category will be combined.
Fantasy Shorts fall into the 30-59 minute range, compared to the "mini-shorts" which are under 30 minutes.

Films must be the original work of the submitter and must be accompanied by a completed entry form and entry fee.

Opportunities will be provided for participation in a television advertising program. Film makers will have the chance to have their film promoted at substantially reduced rates. Film makers will need to provide a 30 second trailer for their project with a ShockerFest tag to be included in this program.

Entries may be divided into categories based on budget - please include your budget on your WAB Project Details (encouraged but not required). Films which do not specify budget will be placed in high budget category.

Accepted films will be broadcast on a local community television station with potential audience of 1.5 million people.
