Creature Feature Weekend!
We are proud to present Creature Feature Weekend, a horror convention and film contest in Historic Gettysburg. We cannot wait to bring you independent features and short films by up and coming directors and to have some of them introduced by the director and cast themselves! Best of all will be that all of the movies will be shown in the R/C Gateway Theater in Haunted Gettysburg.
Our objective is to help filmmakers showcase their film to the public in a state of the art facility while giving attendees a first glance into a new wave of horror. Creature Feature Weekend will provide everyone attending and submitting films the opportunity to mingle and chat with those attending the festival as well as the opportunity to meet celebrities attending the convention. Our first year saw celebrities the likes of Corey Feldman, Joe Bob Briggs, Tom Woodruff Jr, and even a Frankenhooker Reunion.
This is going to be the event of the year with Food Trucks, Music, Movies, Celebrity Guests, Photo Ops, and even an auction. People will pour in from miles around to explore the festival and the town of Gettysburg - make your film part of the Ultimate Horror Convention!!
Movies must be either a full length movie or a short film. Music Videos are considered short films.
We require that films be submitted through FilmFreeway in the form of an online screener.
In submitting your film you guarantee that you have permission to show your film to be shown in a public exhibition. You must have in your possession any paperwork showing that you have full license and permission to show your film.
