Welcome to The Collective… V.5!
The one of a kind short film collection featuring
10 short films all based on the same theme is back
and this time the dead have taken over.
Out to prove that the zombie genre isnâ€™t over, itâ€™s just overdone,
The Collective V.5 features 10 short films with a
new and interesting take on the undead.
The films range from intimate to insane with each filmmaker
putting their own unique twist on the idea.
The films featured on The Collective V.5
provide something Hollywood hasnâ€™t had in a long time, heart.
These filmmakers stand as proof
that it doesnâ€™t take a huge budget to make a great film,
it only requires a huge imagination.

The Collective and Days of the Dead are working together to shine a light on
the best up and coming independent horror filmmakers in the scene.
Often overlooked by other conventions,
independent and no budget filmmakers are creating the most
interesting and unique films today.
Days of the Dead recognizes this talent and has gone out of its way to prove it.
By providing screenings and discount vendor tables for artists and filmmakers,
they have introduced fans to a whole new crop of talented individuals.
We are proud of this relationship and hope to continue working with Days of
the Dead in the future.
Beginning November 16th 2012 The Collective V.5 will be
available through the websites of the filmmakers involved as
well as many online retailers.
