1st Prize WINNER Eye Scream 2003A major thanks to all those who came along to the night, as well as our supporters (see logos, right), and CONGRATULATIONS goes to Jonathan Sequeira for his excellent 1st Prize winning film, BLOOD OF A WOMAN!!!

Our host, Jacinta DoyleThe night was a huge success, with the Valhalla Cinemas packed to the rafters. Everyone seemed to love the films, as well as our joyous host, JACINTA DOYLE, all the way from Ireland.

Amazingly, some of the audience even got dressed up in some fantastic costumes, and were lucky enough to go in the chance to win some goodies, including some very nice T-Shirts from YB BLUE (made by JeansWest), T-Shirts and passes to the FREDDY VS. JASON movie (out now), and passes to the new CABIN FEVER movie (out in December).

Runner Up WINNER, Darrell Giles Also, in the prize giving, was the psychodrama I CAN HELP(?) by DARRELL GILES, which took out the Runner-Up Prize. And the very popular, and very scary, MARY WORTH, by LUKE BANYAI won the Audience Award, amongst a rather even voting range. It sure must have made it worth it for the Victorian to come all the way up to Sydney!!!

Audience Award WINNER, Luke Banyai And lastly, sorry to all those who weren't able to get in on the night!! We weren't kidding when we said that "tickets are selling fast", now, were we??

Again, a HUGE thanks to all those who supported, sponsored, and entered the 2003 EYE SCREAM Halloween Short Film Festival. The past year has been absolutely amazing, and we have been stunned by the support and response we have received. Halloween is such a fun night, and it's great to see so many others thinking the same thing, and getting into the spirit of the fun.

One of many fancy dress winners The EYE SCREAM crew will be back soon with an even bigger and better EYE SCREAM for 2004!

Have fun,
The EYE SCREAM team.
