   ***Congratulations to the winners of the Horror Lockdown Short Film Competition!*** 


Our Horror Lockdown Short Film Competition has now come to an end and it’s time to reveal our winners!


As a quick reminder, we had two awards available to our short filmmakers – The Best Short Film Award 🏆 and The Audience Award🏆. The 10 shortlisted entries have been carefully reviewed by directing duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead who awarded the Best Short Film Award🏆 to the short of their choice. The Audience Award 🏆 goes to the short that YOU selected in our online public vote.


Without further ado, Justin and Aaron have recorded a special video to reveal their pick… 🥁🥁🥁




…. And the winner of the Best Short Film Award🏆 is TOYS by James Cookson!


If you didn’t get the chance to watch the winning short yet - or you’d like to watch it again - here it is for your viewing pleasure:

A final congratulations from the Arrow Team & Celluloid Screams to both our winners, the shortlisted filmmakers and everyone who took the time to enter competition. It was a pleasure to review all your submissions and we still can’t quite believe how many of you took the time to participate.
