[Sharing this Call for Entries notice and a nice email that we received from the organizers regarding their working with state film offices (which will explain the COMMISSION discount code--see below. Please contact the festival directly with any questions.]
CALL FOR ENTRIES - Grave Intentions Anthology is open for submissions. We're looking for short films and short screenplays that broadly fit the horror genre, including suspense, thriller, fantasy, sci-fi, supernatural, etc. If your short would be at home on The Twilight Zone, Tales From the Crypt, The Outer Limits, or Creep Show, we want to see it!
The winning short films (as many as ten) will get $500 each and be included in "Grave Intentions," a feature length anthology of chills, thrills & kills, which will be distributed worldwide.
One winning screenplay will get $500, with the potential for Death Cat Entertainment to produce the script into a short film for the next volume of "Grave Intentions." The screenplay winner will also receive a prize package from InkTip.

[and the nice note from the organizers...]
Hi New Hampshire Film Office Staff,
We’re searching for the best horror short filmmakers and screenwriters, and we need your help!
As filmmakers, we know that outside of the film festival circuit, most shorts will die a lonely death in the bowels of the interwebs. So to provide filmmakers the exposure they deserve, we’re creating a feature length anthology of scary short films called "Grave Intentions,” which will be distributed worldwide. And we need your assistance to help spread the word to the talented artists in New Hampshire.
Our Film Commission has been a major part of our journey as filmmakers, and we truly appreciate all the ways film commissions help the community. Therefore, we want to offer everyone who learns about our contest through your film commission a discount of $10 off when they use discount code COMMISSION at https://filmfreeway.com/GraveIntentionsAnthology
Our call for entries is below, along with sample social media posts. We’d appreciate any help you can give us in getting the word out to your community.
