The Festival of Souls contest was a Halloween-themed brickfilming competition hosted by Hal Warner-Clayton in 2010 and 2011 on the Bricks in Motion forums. Entrants were required to produce a film based on one of two horror-based themes.

The Festival of Souls 2010 contest was announced on September 17 with a deadline of October 28.[2] The two available themes were Comedy Horror and Serious Horror. The winner of each category would receive a $50 gift certificate for the BrickLink seller MT-Bricks, the contest's sponsor. The results were originally intended to be announced on Halloween, but they were eventually delayed until November 10. The judging panel rotated during the running of the contest and the final panel consisted of Hal Warner-Clayton, John Lucewich and Jonni Phillips.[3] The contest received 20 entries.[4]


While the results ranked the top ten entries overall, the winners of the contest were the winners of the two themes. This meant that the two winners were in fact the entries in first and third place.
