The competition also aims to promote greater integration of the educational community and ensure more spaces for creativity and independence for Hallow IF.
Short films produced by students of integrated high school courses on the SJDR campus with original script and free nature will be accepted (as long as they cover the horror theme), and all types of horror are welcome, such as horror films, supernatural, psychological, found footage, among others.
Short films can be produced collectively or individually. Short films can be recorded in Portuguese, Spanish or English. Every “director” should be responsible for the production of his or her film.
