The list is growing as Drafthouse Films, Timpson Films and Magnet Releasing have secured genre heavyweights Xavier Gens (Frontiers, The Divide) and Christopher Smith (Severance, Black Death, Triangle, Creep) to join Noburo Iguchi (RoboGeisha, Machine Girl) and Kaare Andrews (Altitude) along with 21 other directors to make up the talented roster behind The ABCs of Death, a twenty-six chapter anthology feature that showcases death letter by letter. The 26th Director spot will be determined by short film competition to discover an aspiring new talent. The winning filmmaker will receive a $5000 cash prize and will be included in the final release of the film.
If you want to enter, you will choose your own word and create a short film based off the letter “T.” The interpretation of the word and the format of the short film will be entirely up to you. The top 10 shorts will be determined by public voting and the winning director will be selected by the 25 ABCs of Death directors to become the 26th and final director!
Submissions are open now and close on October 1 at midnight PST, and there is no entry fee to submit. Finalists will be announced October 31st and the winning filmmaker announced on November 15th. For more on the competition dates, parameters and rules, visit this link.
