FrightFest, in association with Glasgow Film Festival, are delighted to announce an exciting new initiative to discover the next wave of emerging Scottish talent.

FrightFest has always championed new film-makers since its inception in 2000. Now, for the very first time they are encouraging Scottish based talent to rise to the challenge of creating something with a running time of just 90 seconds.

Entry is free and the winning shorts will be screened at the Horror Channel FrightFest Glasgow Film Festival event, held at the Glasgow Film Theatre on the 2nd/3rd March 2018 and again at FrightFest’s London event in August 2018.

Can you make a short film scary or surprising in 90 seconds? The challenge is ON!

Films should be no longer than 90 seconds and be in the Horror, Thriller, Science Fiction or Fantasy genres.

Films should be shot in Scotland by Scottish residents and entries should NOT currently be available online.

All submissions are free and must be received by Tuesday 13th February 2018. Filmmakers of entries selected to be screened will be notified by 23rd February 2018.

  • Went to Frightfest a few times and always enjoyed the screening, hosts and Q&A’s. First year I’ve had something screened and was amazing fun. Would highly recommend this festival both 90sec comp and main festival.
