Last couple weeks to submit filmmakers! StokerCon is gearing up for its second annual film festival and with a $1,000 cash prize and some really awesome judges. How could you not want to enter your short horror film?! Acclaimed director Mike Flanagan (Gerald’s Game, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Hush) and Blumhouse’s Editor-in-Chief Rebekah McKendry, as well as yours truly will help select the winning films and I’m excited to be a part of such a revered lineup.
Unlike most film festivals that run the course of a number of days and consist of hundreds of films, StokerCon is focusing on quality over quantity. The festival only takes place for one evening and there are no features in competition. And if it didn’t jump out at you enough above allow me to reiterate, THERE’S A $1,000 CASH PRIZE!
This is certainly one of the newer indie film festivals you should take heed of ladies and gents.
