Sinema Challenge

What the $%#& is it?!?!
The Buried Alive Sinema Challenge was developed as a fun motivational film making competition for local artists. We understand how hard it is to complete a film in a single weekend…especially a horror film, an animation, or any kind of film that requires a little more special fx or technical love. So we wanna give you THIRTEEN DAYS! Why 13? Because its spooky that’s why…and we wanna see what you really got! No excuses of running out of time. Give it your best, call up your friends, borrow some equipment, find a weird location, get some local band involved and make something we’ve never seen before and most of all, have fun doing it! But wait there is a catch… to ensure that your film was created for our festival we have random horror subgenres you draw from and an obscure subject to work with. No mater what the outcome of your film is, it will be screened as the opening film block of the 11th annual Buried Alive Film Fest!

How It Works:

Application should be submitted online prior to the evening. Spaces are limited.

The Kick-Off Party at Joystick Gamebar Nov.1, 2016 between 7pm and 10pm. ONE member of each team must be present.

Each team will draw TWO horror subgenres cards from a bin. (1 Can be returned or genres can be combined)

Then draw ONE subject card from a bin. (Cards Against Humanity subject cards)

The subject card can be a person place or thing and can be used in a variety of ways but must be noticeable. Whether it be a character, a prop, a location, or a line of dialogue. Can not be used in credits.

Remember your adherence to the genre and use of subject are included in the judging criteria.

Feel free to hang out, share ideas with your team or other filmmakers, have a few drinks and ask any questions you may have. You have 13 days to make this movie starting at 8pm Nov.1 and due by 8pm Nov. 14th, 2016

These screenings will take place at 7pm and 9pm Wednesday Nov. 16th.
