READ FULL DETAILS ON THE CHALLENGE BELOW;
The 2023 Halloween Edition of the Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge is upon us! While this incredibly popular Edition of the Challenge tends to be a little edgier (and scarier) than the others, it is still open to filmmakers of all ages and skill sets in the state of Utah. Whether you’ve made a film before or not, this is a terrific outlet for storytellers.
On Friday, September 1st at 7 PM (MST), right here on this event page (and at FMASU.com), we'll post a link for registration. Once you register and pay the submission fee, we’ll email you the rules and regulations along with the topic to build your film around. Filmmaking teams will have just over a month to put together a 5-minute short film utilizing the given topic and any resources available to them.
Those who register and pay the submission fee by 11:59 PM (MST) on Sunday, September 3rd will receive $10 off the regular $50 submission fee as well an extra 60 seconds towards their film running time.
The Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge has been going strong in Southern Utah since 2005. For veterans, it's a great way to keep the creative juices flowing and for novices, it's the perfect creative avenue to get your feet wet.
Again, the submission fee is only $50 per film ($10 off for those who sign up by Sunday, September 3rd at 7 PM MST.) This is extraordinarily inexpensive when stacked up against other filmmaking competitions of this nature from around the country. Putting it into perspective, if you have a team of 5 setting out to make a short film, that breaks down to only $10 per person. Even cheaper if you get that $10 off.
Sign up asap once the portal goes live as there will only be 25 slots available.
All short films created for the Challenge will be presented in a live theatrical setting on Friday, October 13th at 7 PM at the Eccles Theater (on UTU campus.)
Tickets for the 2023 Halloween Edition of the Guerilla Shorts Showcase (screening event) will be sold shortly after Challenge registration opens. Tickets will only be $10 each.
There will be cash prizes awarded to the strongest guerilla shorts of the bunch and what's more, the 1st place winner will screen at the highly anticipated 2023 HorrorFest International Film Festival, running from Wednesday, October 18th thru Saturday, October 21st.
Each paid Guerilla submission will come with one free ticket to the Guerilla Showcase event as well as a 4-day screening pass to HorrorFest International (this pass is for screenings only.)
Again, the 2023 Halloween Edition of the Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge registration will go live on this event page (and at FMASU.com) on Friday, September 1st at 1 PM (MST.) Register and pay the fee by Sunday, September 3rd at 11:59 PM (MST), and you'll receive $10 off the $50 submission fee as well as an extra 60 seconds towards your project running time.
If you love films and the magic of storytelling, then the Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge is for you! And if you're a fan of horror films and the spirit of Halloween, you're likely to have the time of your life! Be sure to register on September 1st!
