ASIAN ON A MISSION PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS

THE 4TH ANNUAL 6IX SCREAMS INTERNATIONAL HORROR FILM FESTIVAL

We accept horror shorts up to 30 minutes long.

You scream! I scream! The 6ix screams!

Toronto wants to get scared - and not the kind of fear the Leafs feel when they find out they're playing Boston in the playoffs. Our audience is looking forward to forgetting a bit of reality by watching your horror short films on October 25, 2021!

Scare us! Show us what you got! Show us THE HORROR!

DONT STOP TIL THE 6IX SCREAMS!!!

    While I was unable to attend in person (in another country) the communication from the event was top notch, which , when you're submitting internationally is ESSENTIAL ! Great service, well executed and they're on top of things with their social media - which we all know is essential!

    I couldn't recommend higher to anyone looking for a great genre film festival .

    Well done and thank you!
