20th Century Fox and Tongal have just announced they’re teaming up for the first officially sanctioned Alien short film competition! Offering $246,000 in prizes, the competition is open to American fans and film makers and is due to last until the end of the year.

The competition is sorted into various phases, beginning with the pitching phase. Eighteen short form pitches will be selected to move onto a full pitch, each receiving $2000 to help develop it.

That’s right, Tongalers, we’re giving you the chance to create your own original story set in the biggest horror franchise of all time: Alien! Go ahead. Run outside and scream with excitement if you want to (just don’t do it in space). But then hurry back here and pay close attention to this Brief because we’ve got a lot to cover.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original Alien, 20th Century Fox is tapping six visionary filmmakers in the Tongal Community to produce their own original short videos set in the aftermath of the original film.

Fox wants a wholly original story with completely new characters but your Pitch should draw on all the things that made the original Alien so groundbreaking. Think about all the unique qualities of the movie before crafting your story.

 20th Century Fox & Tongal Announce Alien Short Film Contest!

Following this, 6 pitches will be selected to move onto full blown production and receive a budget of $30,000.

Head on over to the official competition page to learn more about the whole event! You can find out a little more Tongal and their creative processes on their website. Good luck to everyone who enters!

Dam US only.

Here's my story for shits and giggles.

Someone should do a short film, about an Alien fan who is pissed off with how 20th Century Fox and Ridley Scott made shitty Alien prequels. The crazed Fan (probably a member from this forum) kidnaps David Fassbender and demands that David Fincher has to remake Alien 3 with no studio interference and have full control over the script and directing.. If Fincher fails he will cut off Fassbender's fingers and toes one by one and post them to Fox/Disney. However Fincher wants nothing to do with it because of how Fox treated him back in the early 90's when he made Alien3. The kidnapper sends one of Fassbenders fingers to 20th Century Fox / Disney. Ridley Scott is having a breakdown cos his beloved Fassbender has lost a finger and won't be able to finger his flute in Alien Covenant part 2. Ridley now refuses to make Merlin for Disney because Disney and fox can't convince David Fincher to make his true Alien3. Time is ticking Fassbender life's in danger.

Are they going to part of the official storyline? I like watching the entire story in chronological order, so 6 short films inserted into the story could be fun!
