This is the 2nd year, for the film competition, at Mare Island Preserve, part of the NightMARE Island Haunt.

Last year, we had screened some amazing short films to a sold out room. Everyone that presented a film, had the opportunity to talk about their film, the process and received amazing questions and feedback, from the audience.

This year, the same thing, anyone is welcome to submit a scary, thriller, suspenseful, or chilling 10 minute short film or less, for the chance to be entered into the 2nd NightMARE Island Film Competition!

Hoping to have better prizes, this time around! Last year, winners got to take him photocards with their films printed onto the limited edition photos, taken by festival director, Jessica Brown!

Happy filmmaking and good luck!
