Title: Trick or Treat, Alistair Gray
Runtime: 9 min
Director: Lindy Ryan
Placement: Honorable Mention
Competition: September, 2021
Synopsis: In the style of Tim Burton’s THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and Lemony Snicket’s THE DARK, after leaving a school carnival that feels more silly than spooky, a young boy learns about the true spirit of Halloween.
When Alistair Gray attends his school Halloween carnival, he is disappointed to see his favorite night of the year has turned more silly than scary—all treats and no tricks.
But when he wanders alone into the dark the night before Hallow’s Eve, Alistair meets a spooky new friend that teaches him the holiday is about fun and of fright…and that there’s more than one way to celebrate Halloween.
