RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Love horror movies? This showing of horror films created by 26 Richmond filmmakers may be just the event for you.
The films — which were created in only 48 hours — will be shown for the 48 Hour Film Horror Project on Sunday, Oct. 29 at Movieland, located at 1301 N Arthur Ashe Blvd.
Tickets are available for purchase online in advance at the above links through Saturday, Oct. 28 for $12 each, or day-of-screening for $15.
Each screening will include a question and answer session with the filmmakers immediately following the films and a chance for viewers to select an ‘Audience Choice Award’ for that screening, according to organizers. Voting will be held by QR code.
Films will also be shown at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, followed by the presentation of awards for filmmakers.
Organizers said one film will be chosen by a panel of film professionals as the “Best 48HFP Horror Film of Richmond” and that film will move on to screen at Filmapalooza in Lisbon, Portugal in March 2024 and a chance of being screened in the 2024 Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner.
A runner-up and awards in other categories will also be presented immediately after the screenings.
