Devil's Night Gallery will be an evening of film and art in the spirit of Rod Serling's classic television series, Night Gallery. Traditionally, we've held live, public events in Detroit and Pittsburgh. Unfortunately, global events this year have caused us to decide to go digital for this year only. The plus side is that this opens us up to a much larger audience and filmmakers or artists who normally would be unable to travel for our show can now see it! Don't worry though, we'll be back to doing this in proper venues next year!
A small handful of films will be selected to screen for this event and for each film selected, an original piece of art will be created by a local artist, based on the individual films. During the screening, the art pieces will be revealed and a short introduction given before each film is shown.
For this unique event, we're specifically looking for short films (20 mins or less) that can fit into the horror or sci-fi genres. Any budget, any skill level and any completion date is acceptable but we are looking for films with a unique take on these genres. Particularly ones with some sort of unexpected or twist ending.
There will be no prizes but if selected, your film will screen before a digital audience and we'll be happy to send you a print of the original art based on your film.
We have no real rules. We only ask that accepted filmmakers do their part to help promote the screening because a bigger audience for their film means a bigger audience for all of us.
Additionally, we make no claims to the rights of your films. By submitting you are granting us the right to screen your film to a public audience for 2 online showings (the official one and then a likely encore one, probably the next night or a week later) if officially selected. We may also consider doing a physical media release of the screening but you will be notified before that happens and be given the option to consent or have your film omitted from that.
