The Unscreamables: Short Films Rising from the Frothing Chaos
July 9, 2021 6:11 PM   Subscribe

In under thirty minutes, Scream It Off Screen (previously with website and YouTube channel links website features an image of the event's host in a milk bath - should have mentioned that last time, honestly) will stream their next short film contest of chaos, with the audience voting on whether each of fifteen completely randomly selected short films plays to completion, and which of those that fully played wins the Big Nasty Prize of $101.01. But this time, click 'more inside' for a full list of past winners (and second, third and notable next places where listed on the website and Facebook page), with links to watch them wherever possible - all no more than fifteen minutes long. (Warning: films may include blood, violence, non-sexual nudity and who knows what else.)

I'm watching it live! Does Fanfare have support for live streams like this? Could be fun to get it in there where people are more inclined to comment on the shorts.
