72 Hour Horror Film Race 2017

April 27-30, 2017

The 72 Hour Horror Film Race is a competition that challenges filmmakers to create an entire film in 72 Hours using the surprise Theme (for example: "an ultimatum"), Prop (ex. a noodle) and action (ex. biting into something) provided at the beginning of the competition (10PM Eastern Time on April 27).  

Aside from those three elements, you have free rein over your film. You are free to be as creative as you want, within the rules of the competition. We challenge you to create something more...something intelligent...something that makes you "think".


you are free to choose any horror genre (psychological thriller, killer, paranormal, monster, etc) and/or sub-genre (comedy horror, sci-fi horror, horror romance, gothic horror, etc), keeping in mind the Film Race prohibition on Graphic Gore and Graphic Violence in all Film Race competitions of every length (if you have questions about where the line is on this prohibition, feel free to contact us and we will discuss with you).
