Last Friday, October 7 marked the beginning of Seattle 48 Hour Horror Film Project 2016. Local filmmakers scrambled to complete a short horror film in only 48 hours. Thirty teams submitted their final projects on Sunday, October 9, and on Tuesday, October 11, the public has a chance to see their creations.
To ensure these are original works created for the festival, the films must follow parameters set by the organizers. For example, each film needs a pediatrician named Larry or Laura Brown. Next, they must include sunflower seeds as a prop. Finally, each film will contain the line, “Would you look at the size of that thing.” Can you imagine? The possibilities are endless.
The project’s 30 films will screen in two different groups at SIFF Cinema Uptown. Group A’s screening begins at 6:30pm, followed by Group B at 9pm. Each screening is around 100 minutes. Perhaps one will take home the “Best Horror Film Short” at the 48 Hour Film Project’s Filmapalooza 2017 in March.
