Over the course of an adrenaline-filled weekend, filmmaking teams compete to write, shoot, and edit a short horror film based a provided line of dialogue and a given prop. The films will be screened online on PRIMAA's Youtube page beginning at 7:00 PM Oct. 29.
All participants will be entered into a draw for various participation prizes. (PRIMAA Board Members are not eligible for participation prizes).
PRIMAA will be handing out two award titles for Judges’ and Audience’s Choice, but the real prize will be bragging rights.
