  • Comedy

SCREAM it off SCREEN's Short Film Gong Show is a short film competition where audience members decide what gets GONGED (yes, with a real gong) and which local filmmaker wins the cash prize. Votes are cast by screaming out loud. None of the short films are preselected or prescreened; no one knows what will play next, not even the organizers. All submitting filmmakers are required to sit in the audience, surrounded by Minnesota’s toughest critics. This is not a competition for sensitive folks, or anyone that takes life too seriously.

Theatrics are put on throughout the show by the host , Mr. Terry, his interns, a very talented piano man named “King”, and the show’s mascot, a big red mouth named SCREAMY.

  • First Friday of Every Month
  • FREE & EASY to submit a film. All are welcome. Deadline is the Tuesday before each show.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

Footloose first burst onto the silver screen in 1984 and proved to be one of the year’s most successful motion pictures. The soundtrack recording reached #1 on the Billboard charts, and went on to sell over 17 million copies worldwide, generating such Top Forty hits as its title song and “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” (both of which received Academy Award nominations), plus “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out For A Hero,” and “I’m Free (Heaven Helps the Man).” With a screenplay and lyrics by Oscar winner Dean Pitchford, the story focused on young people, much like his previous, and wildly successful movie musical Fame.

"Minnesota nice" is sent packing at the monthly event where independent short filmmakers are left celebrated, or humiliated, by the power of mob-rule! That's the premise of Scream It Off Screen, the monthly film party where audience members wield Gong Show-like editorial powers via their screams of praise or dissatisfaction — and each month, the merits of 15 short films are weighed via trial-by-verbal-combat, as their creators compete for cash prizes. We’re big, big fans of SIOS; don’t miss it!

None of the films are pre-screened or pre-selected by the organizers. Instead, 15 films are randomly drawn from a very complicated lottery system. Join the Scream it off Screen family for an unforgettable and unique experience unlike anything else in the Twin Cities….and probably the world!
