60 SECONDS TO CREATE THE SCARE OF YOUR LIFE

13 Minutes of Horror is a 60-second film challenge showcasing woman-identifying horror filmmakers, inclusive of BIPOC women, LGBTQ+ women, disabled women, and non-binary creators. Several films will be featured between August 13 - 15, including thirteen official selections.

Our inaugural theme is FOLKLORE. Filmmakers may pull from myths, fables, campfire stories, ghost stories, urban legends, folktales, and even family histories or personal experiences with the supernatural or paranormal. This does not mean that your film has to be based on a specific myth, legend etc. The goal is to find inspiration from these stories and experiences to create your own original piece.

Submissions open May 14th, but you can get a head start now—good luck!
