The Flint Fright FilmFest returns To Mott Community College this Saturday for a full day of viewing some of creepiest short indie horror films from local filmmakers and others around the world. Now in its second year, this adults-only event will offer films, vendors and three panel discussions on the film industry.
Launched last year by the The Flint Horror Collective, the event is sponsored by Mott’s Media Arts and Entertainment Technology Program and the Black and Gold Club.
An awards ceremony is set for 8:15 p.m. to honor six films in the following categories: the Grand Ghoul Award for best film, the Bradbury Award for best writing in a film, the Chaney Award for best special effects in a film, the Charles Shaver Memorial Award for the best Made in Michigan film, the Jon Cockerill Memorial Award for best Made in Flint film, and the Marilyn Ringler Memorial Award for the scariest film.
The Flint Horror Collective describes itself as a group of like-minded friends living in and around mid-Michigan who are focused on bringing fun and inexpensive horror events to the area. The group also launched other horror events including the Flint Horror Convention and the Monster Marketplace.
Flint Fright FilmFest is noon to 9 p.m. Saturday, October 27 at Mott Community College’s Memorial Building Auditorium, 1401 E Court St. Admission is $5. (Free for Mott students with ID.) Must be 18.
