Frightfest to Release its 2013 Short Film Programme as an Anthology
For its 2013 festival Frightfest created the short films contest 666: Shortcuts to Hell to choose its short film programme. In previous years, Frightfest has featured a Short Films Showcase in the Main Screen, which brought together talent from all over the world. This year, the shorts have come from the competition and their screenings are spread out between Main and Discovery Screens and play as a short teaser before the main feature. Frightfest has now collected all the British entries together to create its own answer to The ABCs of Death in the form of Shortcuts To Hell: Volume 1. Read on for the official info and check out the trailer below.
Movie Mogul, in association with FrightFest and Horror Channel, is to release an anthology of the 26 best short films from the 666 Short Cuts To Hell national talent search competition.
An essential collection of shorts for anyone serious about horror and the directors of tomorrow, SHORTCUTS TO HELL: VOLUME 1 is available on iTunes and BlinkBox from August 23, 2013 – to coincide with the announcement of the winner of the competition at Film4 FrightFest.2013. The winner will receive a cheque for £6,666 from the judging panel, which includes Tom Six, Paul Hyett & Emily Booth.
All of the films were made under the same six, gruelling restrictions. Filmmakers had to choose from one of six existing titles, make their film no more than three minutes long, spend no more than £666, harnessing no more than six cast, six crew, six lines of dialogue and just six hours of shooting time.
The results and creative interpretations of these restrictions vary considerably, but all provide compulsive and entertaining viewing.
Shortcuts To Hell: Volume 1 is an exciting new platform, which clearly demonstrates the wealth of filmmaking talent there is on offer within UK shores.
