August 31st Deadline Rapidly Approaching!
August 13, 2007: VersusMedia, along with DreadCentral.com, recently announced an open call to all independent horror filmmakers in a search for THE best independent short horror films for the Horror Dâ€™Oeuvres Short Film Competition. Only a little more than two weeks remain for submissions. Indie horror filmmakers are encouraged to expedite submissions of their short horror films for review by both companies before August 31, 2007!
For a simple entry fee of $15, film submissions will be reviewed for the chance to be one of the select few to have a screening at the Eerie Horror Film Festival. In addition, top selections will be awarded the opportunity to be in the upcoming VersusMedia Viewers’ Choice DVD release. The DVD will be available for purchase online as well as at various festivals and locations.
Independent filmmakers should submit short films up to around 20 minutes in length. Mailed submissions must be either NTSC DVD or VHS. Officials will also accept high quality digital formats including DIVX or other high quality codecs. Films that become finalists in the competition will be available online for viewing during the voting process. Credit for each submission will be given, including filmmakers’ names and production information.
This is a unique chance for fledgling filmmakers in the short horror film genre to submit their best works for recognition, including having their submissions voted on by select “celebrity” judges in order to proceed to the finals. Finalists will then be voted on by horror fans around the world for the best independent short horror film.
