Are you a budding Alfred Hitchcock or Jordan Peele? Join the Sixth Annual Halloween-O-Thon, in which teams of teens and adults make original five-minute thriller/horror films in three weeks.
REGISTRATION opens Sept 1
Workshops and mandatory kickoff meeting Mon, Oct 2.
Film premiere: Sun, Oct 29 at 1pm and 4pm
Starting on October 2, registered teams have three weeks to write, direct and star in their own five-minute horror mini-masterpieces. Dartmouth students will also offer movie-making workshops for youth participants before the kickoff meeting on Oct 2, sharing best practices as well as tricks (and treats) of the trade! On Sun, October 29, we’ll roll out the red carpet for the finished films in the Loew Auditorium—distributing awards for everything from best screenplay to best scream.
The film premieres are free, unticketed and open to the public. Patrons will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Part of the Community Venture Initiative
The Hop’s Community Venture Initiative (CVI) aims to increase the Upper Valley community’s engagement and access to Hop programming. CVI builds on the Hop’s commitment, over its 50-year history, to community-oriented programs involving a strong network of local organizational partners, as well as on ideas generated by the Hop’s Class Divide Project, a three-year initiative that examined socio-economic class via the arts.
The project is funded by Jane’s Trust, as well as support from Jane and Peter McLaughlin, The Jack & Dorothy Byrne Foundation, Neda Nobari Foundation, Nini and Rob Meyer, Jenny and Stan Williams and Norwich Partners.
