Award Winning Short 'Night of the Slasher' To Screen at SXSW

We don't do to much with short films around the DW. Of course most short films aren't as awesome as Night of the Slasher. Recently it was announced that the already heavily acclaimed short will be screened 3 times at the vaunted South By Southwest Film Festival - SXSW for those in the know. Each one of the screening will be followed by a Q & A period. Take a look at the trailer for the film, some choice cuts from the press release and the cool as fuck poster (we are nothing if not lazy).

"Multi award-winning short film and media sensation, Night of the Slasher, written and directed by Shant Hamassian, has been selected at SXSW 2016. Three screenings are scheduled during the festival. The filmmaker and members of his team will be in attendance for a Q & A.

Filmmaker Shant Hamassian and producer Adam Lesar are attending SXSW for the duration of the festival, to promote Night of the Slasher, and also pitch the feature version of this short, which is actually a “proof-of-concept”. They are currently seeking financing, production partners, and distribution.

'For years, I kept running into closed doors, but now SXSW has opened a big one! But it’s not just a financial investment we are seeking, but an investment and trust in the vision and in myself,” explains director Shant Hamassian.'

Night of the Slasher is a 'shot-in-one-take' film about a teenage girl who must commit horror movie sins in order to lure a masked killer so she can exact revenge."
