Entries sought for Carson City’s Creepy Film Festival

Wired Wednesday and Carson TV are sponsoring the Carson Creepy Film Festival competition, which invites filmmakers to submit a piece to coincide with the event’s theme — “Creepy.”

To participate, register by 5 p.m. Monday. Teams have one week to make a film. Three requirements will be announced on Wednesday, Oct. 15, at the Brewery Arts Center Media Center.

The competition offers subcategories — ghost, Halloween, monster, psychological thriller, Sci Fi, spiders/insects, vampire, witches and zombies — which can lean to comedy or horror.

The winners are determined by the following criteria: acting, plot or story, technical/effects, use of ingredients, best picture overall. Some films will be shown on public access television. Those selected for broadcast must not contain gratuitous violence, nudity or inappropriate language.

Films will be screened and judged at 6 p.m. Oct. 25 in the Brewery Arts Center’s Performance Hall. Admission to the screening costs $5 per person. Prizes will be offered at intermission for best costumes.

Films must be submitted by Wednesday, Oct. 22. To register or for more information, go to www.breweryarts.org.
