The undead will rise! The 6th annual Zombiepalooza, Cary’s locally produced zombie-themed short film screening celebration. Each year, local filmmakers and hobbyists are invited to get creative and tell their own Zombie stories in one to five minutes. Filmmakers range in age from teens to older adults, using all types of cameras, including smart phones. The common theme… zombies. Imaginations run wild! As always, there’s one required element every filmmaker must use. Hand sanitizer is this year’s required attraction, so keep your eyes peeled for at least one visible in every film! The annual costume competition will take place as well. So come dressed in your favorite Halloween costume.

The Cary Theater is seeking locally produced short films for Zombiepalooza 2021. Deadline for film submissions is October 6. See website for film submission rules! Attendance is free and open to the public.
