For nearly 20 years, Montreals Fantasia International Film Festival has been an integral space for fantastic and genre cinema. Rowdy audiences are spurred on by rowdier filmmakers, whore often pushing, prodding, scaring and very much entertaining with their art. Industry, artists and fans converge, so it stands to believe youd want them to see your work, too, right?
Alongside Fantasia, Tentsquarethe social network for talent discovery, creative challenges and Crowd Powered Entertainmentand Go Puck, Shock Till You Drop announces the Fantasia Bumper Challenge. Tentsquare members (sign up here) submit a bumper up-to-30 seconds long. No dialogue. Must include the image of a cat or cats as part of the narrative or within the imagery of the bumper.
