Features and Shorts
[And in case you're wondering, short films are 30 minutes or less. Features run at least 75 minutes. If you're in the middle...sorry. Maybe next year, we'll add a "long shorts" section to the festival!]
All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of hardened horror freaks - we'll get back to you, by December 23, 2010 at the latest, and let you know whether you've been accepted. If you want, we can also review the film in detail on TrashCity.org; that is entirely optional, but if you're looking to get buzz started, that would be a good way, since the site gets 1,000+ visitors per day. Let us know with your entry if you'd rather we didn't do that though, and we'll happily keep quiet.
What's in it for me, you say? Well, the winner of both the Best Short and Best Feature will receive a domestic and International distribution deal from Brain Damage Films and Maxim Media International. Other film distribution companies and studios are invited to attend and may be interested in your film. We are working with sponsors to offer a cash prize and we will post prizes when they are available.
There is no better way to get your film seen by horror fans. Other entries may also be offered contracts, if they're deemed worthy, but the winners get that as a guarantee. There'll also be an 'Audience Choice' award for the best single film, be it short or feature. We haven't quite worked out what the prize is for that yet though!
Any questions, please feel free to email us, at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call 602-399-9500, and we'll happily answer your queries.

It is said that a “Picture speaks a thousand words” but when it comes to films it can actually translate into an epic. The strength & reach of a motion picture has always defined new benchmarks & more often than not managed to make an indeligible mark on the minds of the audience. This phenomenon gains ground more so with respect to issues pertaining to environmental degradation & nature conservation.
Discussions & forums on environmental conservation though critical, have lost their potency & often end-up as drab & cliched to a great extent. Thus when spreading the message of nature conservation remains vital, spreading it effectively becomes the cornerstone of this grave issue.
Ecofest’09 aims to get some of the best creative minds in the business for spreading the message to the utmost extent.The idea behind inviting & screening these creatively crafted films is to make a strong impact upon the audience, which is the first step towards urging them towards concrete action.
