Shorts Programs

Share

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.

    Boozing it up at bars is fun and all, but even that can get boring after awhile. The antidote is the Fears & Beers 20th Anniversary screening of SCREAM on Thursday December 8th at 7:30PM at the TCL Chinese Theatres 6 in Hollywood & Highland. Join us for a fun evening of SCREAM trivia with PRIZES!! A Q&A with David Arquette follows the screening.

    FUN FACTS

    The original title of the film was Scary Movie, but it was changed to Scream by the Weinstein brothers—then the heads of the film’s production company, Miramax—in the middle of production. They allegedly decided on the change because Harvey Weinstein was listening to the Michael Jackson song “Scream” in his car with his brother Bob. They both liked the title for a horror movie.

    Screenwriter Kevin Williamson was partially inspired by a real life series of student murders in Gainesville, Florida in 1990, perpetrated by killer Danny Harold Rolling who was later dubbed “The Gainesville Ripper.” Williams was also inspired by John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic, Halloween, his favorite movie.

    The sleepy little town of Woodsboro just woke up screaming. There's a killer in their midst who's seen a few too many scary movies. Suddenly nobody is safe, as the psychopath stalks victims, taunts them with trivia questions, then rips them to bloody shreds. It could be anybody...

    Tickets are $16.00 and includes a complimentary beer for guest who are 21+. Purchase your tickets by clicking the ticket link. Trivia game with Prizes! A Q&A will follow the screening with Deputy Dewey, actor David Arquette. Let the SCREAMS begin!
