*Lovecraft Under the Gun is a 72 hour film competition. Teams have 3 days to make a short film from scratch, using a line of dialogue and a prop that are revealed when they register. The audience chooses the winner based on technical merit, creativity, and how well they used the prop and line of dialogue.
**Pickman's Apprentice is a live art competition. This year's challenge was to create an original sculpture in 2 hours based on a Lovecraftian monster and mood. The finished works are sold by silent auction. The proceeds are being donated to relief efforts after the devastation of Hurricane Dorian.
Color Out of Space is fully funded by ACE Pictures Entertainment, a subsidiary of ACE Holdings Berhad.
