Break Out the Fake Blood: It's the Return of the KnowFilmFast Horror Film Competiton.

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Thu, Oct 16, 2008 at 1:34 PM

Every year, the Know (2026 NE Alberta) hosts the KnowFilmFast Horror Film Competition, in which Portland filmmakers get 66 hours and six minutes to create a horror flick. Or, as Josh from the Know puts it:

Uh oh. Here we go again. Its time once again to sharpen your pencils and then, without warning, stab the pencil into the eye socket of your screenwriting partner, and while laughing, snap it off. Then, you take the half of the pencil your holding (the part with the eraser) to erase all the things your partner wrote up until that moment. You're gonna write this years 666 entry all by your fucking lonesome.

Interested in participating? Show up at the Know tonight between 8 and midnight, and then start shooting. (The full press release, with all the details you'll need, is after the jump.) Finished films from the competition will screen on Saturday, October 25.
