Boca’s Sugar Sand Park seeking scary film festival submissions

Sugar Sand Park‘s annual “Shriek Week” scary celebration is coming, and the Boca Raton park is seeking short film submissions from local children and teens.

Kids ages 6-17 are asked to submit a scary, homemade movie by Sept. 23 for entry into the film festival. It costs $5 to enter. Movie formats may include film, digital, comic book, stop motion and animation.

The grand prize is a GoPro Hero, a waterproof digital camera.

 

Selected films will be uploaded online for an open poll. Judges will watch the films and select a winner, according to festival rules. Some films will be screened during Sugar Sand Park’s “Shriek Week” festivities, Oct. 21-22 and Oct. 27-29.

Here’s the 2015 grand prize-winning short film, “Misconception”:

During “Shriek Week,” the park will also have a 2,500-square-foot haunted house, carnival-style games and food trucks.
