LAS VEGAS — The second annual PollyGrind underground film festival announced that its call for entries will end July 13.

PollyGrind gave out more than 20 awards last year including Best Use of Nudity/Sexuality, Best Use of Violence/Gore, Best Use of Music, The Most Outrageous and The Most Creative.

Festival promoters said it will be awarding close to $10,000 in software prizes from Sony Creative, Final Draft and Red Giant Software, as well as “deluxe sub-distribution packages” from Apprehensive Films, art house distribution contracts from venue host theatre7 in Las Vegas and DVD distribution from Breaking Glass Pictures.

Both the top jury award winner and the top audience award winner will receive DVD contracts with Vicious Circle Films, a specialty label with Breaking Glass Pictures.

Breaking Glass is an east coast-based film distributor formed in 2009 with an international sales division. The company's catalog contains nearly 100 titles including “Cropsey,” “Someone's Knocking at the Door,” “Ticked Off Trannies with Knives” and “Easter Bunny Kill! Kill!”

"I'm super excited about this partnership. Like PollyGrind, Breaking Glass Pictures is about boldly going where others don't. The same can be said for theatre7 and a number of our other sponsors," said event creator and filmmaker Chad Clinton Freeman.

The organizers said that more than half of the features screened last year received DVD distribution and that list grows almost every day. Freeman said, "This year, PollyGrind will feature even more films and we're going to help expose all of these great indie works to an even bigger audience than we were able to last year."

The second and third place films, as ranked by the festival's jury, will receive deluxe sub-distribution packages from Apprehensive Films. "PollyGrind is going to end up being the key festival for indie cult filmmakers to land distribution deals," said Jonathan Morken of Apprehensive Films, whose company slogan is "We Produce & Distribute Films of Questionable Taste."

Apprehensive Films package winners will have their films listed on Amazon.com and on more than 30 of the top VOD providers including iTunes, Amazon VOD, Netflix and more. Additionally, the promoters said the films will be eligible for Wal-Mart sales and will be submitted to the top 5,000 video retailers and wholesale distributors, including Best Buy, Blockbuster, Columbia House, Target and more.

"Aside from Breaking Glass Pictures and Apprehensive Films, Wild Eye Releasing has shown an interest in this year's PollyGrind," Freeman said. "The company, known for releasing controversial and groundbreaking films such as “Night of the Living Dead Reanimated,” “Gothkill," "Blitzkrieg: The Escape from Stalag 69” and Bill Zebub's “Dolla Morte” has recently signed on as a sponsor."

The second annual PollyGrind Film Festival will be held October 7-16 in downtown Las Vegas’ theatre7.

Sponsorships are still available.
