Welcome to the dvxuser.com All Hallow's Fest 2007! We asked you to bring on the darkness and you didn't disappoint. As always, we have an amazing collection of short films in our fest. Two things were apparent after watching this bunch--we have some dedicated and talented filmmakers, and some of them are very sick pups. Younger and more sensitive viewers are advised to not try any of this at home--at least not while their parents are around. The satanic rituals and manifestations of evil represented in these films do not represent the opinions of dvxuser.com--at least some of us.
I'd like to thank all the participating filmmakers, our users, the mods, and of course Jarred Land for letting us all run amok on this great site. Turbocharged thanks to Larry R, our Technical Director, for making the trains run on time, maintaining the system, and building the fest infrastructure brick by brick. We should have some cool new features to roll out in 2008, thanks to Larry.
Mirror, mirror--thanks to all our generous mirror provides for letting the undead devour their bandwidth.

All Hallow's Fest Voting Instructions
Who is eligible to vote?
All current dvxuser.com members with 100 or more posts as of today, plus all submitting filmmakers regardless of post count. This applies only to the filmmaker that submitted the film, not the whole crew.
How do I vote?
The films will be available for viewing shortly. After watching all the films, please send me (Barry S) a private message with your post count and your top 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices for best film. You must vote for three different films for your vote to be counted and you may vote for your own film. All votes are kept completely confidential.
How are the votes tallied?
Points are awarded to each film as follows:
1st place vote -- 3 points
2nd place vote -- 2 points
3rd place vote -- 1 point
How are the winners chosen?
We'll annound the top three films based on the total number of points they received. We will not announce the point totals for any films. Keep in mind that a film may be well-liked, but not considered as one of the top three films. Your best source of feedback is your individual film thread. There are always some high quality films that don't necessarily have a broad appeal.
Congratulations to all the filmmakers that submitted entries and thanks to all the members participating.
When does voting start and end?
Voting will run from Tuesday, October 31 through Saturday, November 10 at 5:00 PM EST.
NOTE: The Circle, Retribution, and A Little Mouth to Feed (listed in the bottom box on the download page) are for exhibition only--please do not vote for these films.
What? You haven't even watched a single film yet and yet you burn with the desire to know what the next DVXFest holds in store? We'll announce the next fest on Sunday, November 11.
