This festival offers an opportunity for anyone to submit a 5 minute horror short. Films chosen will be screened as part of a horror showcase for the debut of Gone Where the Goblins Go, a film based on a work by Appalachian author William Bitner.

Thirteen shorts will be chosen for the screening. Three cash prizes will be awarded for the top three films, first place receiving $150 UDS, second $75 USD, third $50 USD. Film makers do not have to be present to win, but attendance is encouraged.
