Category Rules

Feature Horror:
Knowing most director’s get their start with Horror as their first feature film we encourage Horror films that engage, provoke and go beyond the norm by telling powerful stories with engaging characters supported by compelling cinematography and dynamic sound scores. Films must be shorts 15 min or under or feature-length narratives, 60 minutes or longer. California Premiers strongly preferred, though World/North American/US Premiers are ideal.
