SHORT HORROR FILM
As part of Asylumfest, we are excited to announce our inaugural Mayday Hills Short Horror Film Competition (the ‘Mayday Awards’).
To open Asylumfest with a bang, we're screening some short horror films from around the world, screened in the very haunted Bijou Theatre Friday night. Do you dare?
We are hoping to help new voices to be seen in film, the way we have done for writers for close to a decade with Cohesion Press, our small-press publishing house that punches well above its weight in terms of connections and networking.
AUDIENCE TICKETS - $25 each pre-booked, $30 on the night.
TO ENTER AS A FILMMAKER
There are two categories of entry – Australian and New Zealand filmmakers, and International filmmakers.
Films will be limited to 10 minutes (including intro and credits).
There will be an AU$25 entry fee.
We will select the finalists, and pass these on to the judging panel.
The finalists will also be shown in full at Asylumfest on Friday night in the main hall.
1st Place - trophy and cash prize (AU$500)
Second - certificate and cash prize (AU$250)
Third place - certificate and cash prize (AU$100)
