Who Ya Gonna Call?!

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters, Cisco Davis, Jr., a long-time 29 Days Later participant, created a fan film for this year’s 29 Days Later Film Project. You can catch his film, along with a dozen other great local film premieres, in Screening Group B on Friday, Sept 5 at 7:30 pm (doors open at 6:30). Trust us, it’s worth seeing on the big screen – check out his trailer below!

Screening Group A on Wednesday, Sept. 3, also features more than a dozen equally awesome shorts. Click here to purchase tickets to either night or both nights at a discount and here to see a list of teams.

Filmmakers, we’d love to see more trailers like this (under two minutes) to help promote your film!

Drop off is tonight!

Drop off for 29 Days Later is tonight! Stop by the Creative Alliance to grab food and drink and congratulate sleepy and stressed filmmakers on a job well done. Doors open at 6:30, films are due at 7:30 (there will be a slight grace period, but late films may not be eligible for awards). Filmmakers: We hear that 895 is a mess, so you may want to consider alternate routes if coming to Baltimore from points south.

One other note: the first screening will now be held on Wednesday, Sept. 3, instead of Thursday, Sept. 4. The Friday, Sept 5 screening still remains the same. Stay tuned for ticket info and a lineup of teams for each screening night in the next day or two!
