Filmmakers Take Notice! Scare LA Screening Room Is Now Accepting Submissions


Post Thumb:


Filmmakers, here is your chance to get your work screened in front of hundreds of horror movie fans at Scare LA on August 9-10. Scare LA, Los Angeles’ premiere horror weekend, is accepting film submissions to be screened at the event, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for you to shine!

There is no specific length movie Scare LA is looking for. Both shorts and features will be considered for screening. Additionally, the submissions must have some tie-in with Halloween, and the more Halloweeney it is, the better the judges are going to like it.

We’ve included the rest of the rules below, but for more info, feel free to check out the official Scare LA website.

To submit a film digitally, please send it to To submit a hard copy of your movie, contact the same email address for mailing information.

And by all means, if your film gets selected and you go on to hit it big, remember your friends here at Dread Central and save us an interview from time to time.

Rules & Guidelines for Submissions:

  • -Films of any length (feature or short) are accepted.
  • -You must own all rights to the film. Please be mindful of all copyright laws.
  • -All submitted films must embody a Halloween theme. Both documentaries and fictional works are allowed; however, we are not looking for generic horror. The better the connection to the Halloween season, the better your chances to have your film screened.

    Filmmakers whose works are chosen will be notified by August 1st with their screening date and time. All works chosen to be screened will need to be put onto a screener DVD and delivered to Scare LA prior to the morning of the scheduled screening.

    Get that Halloween magic up and running, we can’t wait to see what you come up with! Happy Hauntings!
