ABOUT ZOMBIEPALOOZA

Local filmmaker hobbyists have been invited to get creative and tell their own Zombie stories in one to five minutes. Filmmakers range in age from teens to older adults, using all types of video cameras, including smartphones.  At least 14 films will be screened, with the theme being all about ZOMBIES… how they got here, how to survive a zombie attack, friendly zombies, comedic zombies… imaginations are running wild!

 

We do have one required element that every filmmaker must use: a toilet brush. So, keep an eye out for a toilet brush visible in every film. Otherwise, film creativity is up the imaginations of our entrants.
