BE SCARY, tell a story about HORROR, GORE and GOOSEBUMPS!

Do you think you can you have a 20 minute or less short film that fits Horror or Science-Fiction? Then this is the film festival for you, we accept films from all around the World in our "In the Can" series.

But if you really want to take the challenge to make a 3-15 minute film in only 50 days, then go to our website and register your production team.

Otherwise we'd love to see your film that is already "IN THE CAN"

For the CASH Prizes please register on the 50 FIFTY REEL CHALLENGE home page and take part in the ACTUAL HALLOW's EVE 50-DAY CHALLENGE.

However your film submitted through filmfreeway, will be given a premiere in front of an audience, judged by our panel of international judges and possibly win the trophy of the "BEST IN CAN" as well as Audience Favorite which is voted on by everyone in the theatre at the premiere.

If you already have a short film that is of HORROR and or SCIENCE-FICTION that is less than 20 minutes you can register here, and you will get a premiere on the BIG SCREEN and be judged for the covetted "BEST IN CAN" award.
