The Online Box Office Film Festival (OBO) hosts quarterly contests to give filmmakers another outlet to submit their work and win a number of awards and prizes, including cash. As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, most film festivals were cancelled and a number of industry professionals found themselves out of work. During the downtime, The Online Box Office Film Festival was developed as a solution to get industry professionals moving again. The first edition of the festival competition launched on September 27, 2020 and hit the ground running with hundreds of submissions just weeks after its announcement on FilmFreeway and social media. The first edition was themed for horror short films. The festival theme and film genre acceptance will be different for each quarterly edition.
For this first edition, The Online Box Office Film Festival partnered with the 3rd Fathom Films (www.3rdfathom.com) motion picture production and distribution company to bring the project to life by relying on their horror genre expertise.

After accepting submissions through FilmFreeway (https://filmfreeway.com/OnlineBoxOfficeFilmFestival) from September 27, 2020 until October 25, 2020, The Online Box Office Film Festival has reviewed hundreds of films and announced its finalists. The finalists were announced via social media on October 27, 2020 and winners will be announced on October 31, 2020 during an online live event. The films have been judged based on originality, story, characterization, presentation, and overall impression. In addition to announcing three placements (first, second, and third place prizes), honorable mention recognition will be awarded for Best Screenplay, and Scariest Moment.
