Two Roads Brewing Company is hosting a short horror film competition that showcases our spooky good rum-barrel aged pumpkin beer, Roadsmary’s Baby! Here is your chance to submit a short, independent horror film that features egregiously gratuitous product placement of Roadsmary’s Baby and other Two Roads items in your own film.
On Friday October 18th, 2019 there will be a screening party at Two Roads Brewery to showcase all films submitted starting at 5:00 PM. On Friday October 18th, 2019 join us for the screening party at Two Roads Brewery to showcase all films submitted.
