Five trophies will be awarded at the end of the event, including:

And finally the Jon Cockerill Memorial Award for best Made in Flint film.
Snacks and food will be available for purchase throughout the day, so make plans for a long day of short horror films!
“The Flint Horror Collective is a group of like-minded friends living in and around the Mid-Michigan area focused on bringing fun and inexpensive horror events to the region,” said Chris Ringler, co-found of the Collective. “We are excited to launch this film festival this year as our latest endeavor.”
The group has initiated many events including the Flint Horror Convention and the Monster Marketplace.
This event is a fundraiser for Mott Community College’s film club and the Flint Horror Collective for those wishing to support local film students or future events of the Flint Horror Collective.
