 Calling ALL Young Filmmakers…

Grand Prize GoPro Hero 3 & have your film featured at Shriek Week 2015!


July 1, 2015 (Boca Raton)


Sugar Sand Park announces the 4th Annual Kids’ Scary Film Festival for young filmmakers ages 6-17. The festival is part of the 11th year of Shriek Week, the Community Center's annual family Halloween event running October 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24.  Filmmakers can enter by submitting their film on DVD, an entry form and a $5 fee to the Community Center by September 25. Film genres may include stop-motion animation, film, animation, music videos and digital comic books. Filmmakers will have a chance to win prizes including the Grand Prize – a GoPro Hero 3 camera.


“We started this festival to encourage and acknowledge young filmmakers for their creativity and initiative,” said Jill Dixon, Recreation Center Supervisor III.  “Each year the festival grows and we look forward to the entries, from the truly creepy to the creatively cute. Some younger kids get their families involved and the older kids really shine with their skills. It makes a great project for the summer too.”


The films will be judged by a panel of industry professionals - staff from the Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission, George Colavecchio, “Haunt Master” from G-Star School for the Arts and Steven Lebowitz, movie reviewer for Examiner.com. In addition to the Judge’s Choice, fans can watch and vote for their favorite films online October 1-31 including the People’s Choice.  The selected films will also be played in the Willow Theatre during Shriek Week while patrons are waiting in the queue for the Haunted House Tours.


Awards and prizes will be presented to the winners at a ceremony taking place in November at Sugar Sand Park Community Center.
