by Martyn Conterio on 07/08/2013


Film4 FrightFest, Horror Channel and Movie Mogul joined forces this year to launch a film-making competition. 666 Short Cuts To Hell had winningly strict rules: “a maximum of 6 lines of dialogue, a maximum of 6 cast and crew members and a maximum budget of £666″.

157 entries were judged and a short list drawn up from those entries. Six films made the final selection and the winner will be announced on Sunday 25th August after all six entries have been screened. The films in contention for the grand prize are: Mikel Iriarte’s Six Degrees of (Limb) Separation, Rick James’ 6 Seconds To Die, David Wayman’s 6 Shooter, Alice Moet’s 6th Sense, Weronika Tofilska’s 6 Feet Under and Joe & Lloyd Stas’ Six Feet Under.

Chris Sharp, Chief Programming Officer, Chello Zone, said today:

“The film industry has some incredible talent emerging as seen in our inaugural 666 Short Cuts To Hell competition. It’s been a huge but highly enjoyable task to watch all 157 entries and a very difficult decision process to select the final six. Many more of the short films deserve recognition and exposure so we pledge to broadcast as many as we can on the channel. I’m proud Horror Channel is a platform for rising stars in the industry and we will continue to do all we can to support young talent.”

Film4 FrightFest runs from 22nd August to 26th August in London’s Leicester Square. For tickets and full programme information check out the official FrightFest website: www.frightfest.co.uk
