Organize before they rise! The 6th annual Zombiepalooza, the Town of Cary’s zombie-themed screening party featuring locally produced short films.


Local Filmmakers

Each year, local filmmakers and hobbyists are 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 cameras, including smartphones. The common theme… ZOMBIES. Imaginations run wild! As always, there’s one required element every filmmaker must use. The hair dryer was last year’s required attraction, so keep your eyes peeled for at least one visible in every film.
