Screamfest had an amazing six blocks of short films and one block of student short films premiering at the 2016 festival. We were fortunate to have some short filmmakers in attendance for the majority of the festival who supported their fellow filmmakers. It was great getting to know these filmmakers and making new friendships. They also had the opportunity to network with other filmmakers during the ten day festival run. The winner of the Best Short award was A NEARLY PERFECT BLUE SKY by Quarxx. The winning student short was PIGSKIN by Jake Hammond.
