Halloween Film Festival

368 x Moment

All we can say is... WOW. We were floored by the gracious, loving success by our collaborative Halloween Film Festival with 368 this past weekend. Five amazingly scary, gorey, and dare we say… grueling horror films premiered in NYC at the 368 studio — spider webs, Cabernet, homemade queso, and a room full of talented creatives from all over the country.

The Set-Up

First off, much love to our friends + partners at 368 for being able to open up their space for this event. A giant floor space with bright white walls, gorgeous hardwood flooring, and high ceilings made for the perfect film festival location. Major props to Paul for bringing in his adorable pup, Rolo, to help us set up for 8 hours before the doors opened, too. We couldn’t have done it without his spunk and energy! Just look at how cute he is…

Spooky projector up and ready!

Fueled by $4 Americanos with double shots of espresso — Moment’s content team (+ Ariana!) started building and prepping for the festival bright and early. Our feet began to blister by hour 5, so we took as many mini breaks as needed. Music blasted in the background as we moved tables, draped fake cobwebs over signs, set up the projector, and tested the mics with Niles’ famous singing voice. With plenty of hectic set-up events under our belt, we’ve learned to make even the mundane exciting and worthwhile.

Our 5 Finalists

At the strike of dusk, our five filmmakers showed up and greeted us with a warm embrace. It was such a treat to have been able to meet the creative minds behind this festival. We snagged some selfies in front of our pop-up backdrop, drank some beers, and finalized the finishing touches before we officially opened our doors.

Doors Open in 3, 2, 1…

Ah, yes! Open and ready to rumble. We were completely blown away by the amount of love and support received by everyone who showed up… so much stoke! The space was full of clamoring guests drinking, laughing, eating, and meeting each others in every which way.

When the time came to watch the films, the room was stunned. It’s always rad to see work be showcased to a room full of fellow creatives who appreciate the artistic effort that goes into mobile filmmaking. And, of course, all the films that were shown were filmed on smartphones and mobile gear.
