Films must be between five and ten minutes in duration.
All films must start and end on black.
Do not submit your film with on-screen titling or credits. Full credit details will be required later, in a text document, for those films selected to be part of the anthology.
Films must be relevant to the Anthology's theme, which is: BLOOD. (You do not have to make a film about blood, but your film must feature blood in some way, which is not a particularly difficult stretch for a horror film!)
You can make a short film specifically to submit to this anthology competition, or submit a relevant short that you have already produced. However, any short film that has been screened, exhibited, streamed or distributed, be it on any internet platform, or at any festival or event, or made publicly available by any means, is not eligible. Your film must be exclusively available for distribution as part of A Night of Horror's proposed anthology feature film. If your film is not selected for the anthology you may then distribute it or submit it to any other festivals as you see fit.
In submitting your film to be considered for A Night of Horror's anthology competition, you guarantee that you have all the relevant permissions, rights, licenses and releases for your film to be sold and distributed. This includes, but is not limited to, releases for actors and rights to any music used in your production.
Representatives of A Night of Horror International Film Festival and Deadhouse Films will select the short films to be included in the anthology. The decisions agreed upon by these representatives are final.
Submission fees will contribute to production and post-production costs of the proposed anthology project. If your short film is not selected, you may opt to have your name included in the “thanks to” component of the anthology's end credits.
Filmmakers whose shorts are selected to be part of the anthology will be will be required to review and sign additional documents necessary for licensing, sales, and distribution of the completed feature film.
Fllmmakers whose shorts are included in the anthology will share in a percentage of the film's profits.
