Chiller Sets KILLER SHORTS Film Contest
n keeping with its tradition of fostering up-and-coming creative talent in horror movie-making, Chiller has begun the search for the next horror film maven with its newly-launched "Killer Shorts" contest. Aimed at collegiate-level filmmaking talent at schools across the United States, the Contest invites submissions of 2-3 minute short horror films from aspiring directors. The winning short will make its on-air debut on Chiller following the premiere of the original anthology film, Chilling Visions: 5 States of Fear, on July 11.
From now through mid-April, Chiller will be hosting a series of activations (from speaking engagements to evening events) on college campuses across the U.S., all aimed at fostering awareness around independent filmmaking. Participating schools include UCLA, University of Texas Austin, and Syracuse University. (Entries are not limited to schools hosting events.)
