ShoutOUT!: Sinema SCREEM Shorts 2011: Open Call

Mission & Objective
The first edition of SCREEM Shorts 2011 has officially opened its call for entries and is currently seeking submissions from Singapore and Asian filmmakers. The closing date for submission is 5th Sept 2011.

Probably the first in Asia, the SCREEM Shorts was established in order to provide more opportunities and exposure for independent and non-independent filmmakers and screenwriters working within the horror genre, as well as to draw more attention not only within the local, but Asian region as well.

Sinema hopes to inspire yet another visual experience for our followers to celebrate interesting, and untold horror stories. We also hope it would be a good opportunity for filmmakers to venture into this underrated genre and to interact with various professionals in the process.
