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.

  • Very honored to be selected. Combine each filmmaker with one artist is quite original, can’t wait to see the artwork related to my film and meet the artist. Thank you!

  • I was unable to attend Devil's Night, but the communication from Terence was top-notch. It seems like a very unique and engaging experience, and his follow up with me after the event was very kind. A+

    Terrence runs an intimate but passionate festival. You can tell he cares about the films, and the inclusion of having a local artist construct a piece of art based on each film to be presented at the film showcase is such a unique and fantastic aspect. I wouldn't hesitate to submit again.

    What a wonderful event this was! Held in a gallery just outside of Detroit (nifty neighborhood, lots of cool restaurants), we were instantly welcomed by the most delightful folks who felt like kindred spirits – filmmakers and artists of all kinds. The discussions before and after the screening were as fun as the show itself which was a delightfully eclectic mix of dark, bizarre and comedic short films. The house was packed -- and such an enthusiastic, fun audience it was. The corresponding artwork was impressive and such a fabulous innovation to the fest. The artist who created a work inspired by our film was so fun and talented and inspiring, not to mention generous – he gave us the piece which now hangs in our home. I can’t recommend this one highly enough. A festival about artists for artists by artists. I hope to come back whether or not I have a film screening again and collaborate with some of the great folks we met.
