The festival is now in its fifteenth year and we're looking for fans to create a commercial that will be used on our website and on our Facebook and Twitter pages to help get people excited. And the best part? The winning commercial will be screened at the festival! The only requirements are for the commercial to be under one minute, be horror/sci-fi/fantasy related, and mention that Shriekfest is in its fifteenth year. Submit your commercial to [email protected] by September 1st!
