Shock Therapy is the annual short indie horror film screening event presented by CineVic Society of Independent Filmmakers in Victoria, BC, Canada. After an incredibly successful debut in 2018, we can't wait to be back for a second year in 2019!

In its first year, Shock Therapy illuminated the best of Canadian short horror films, with a focus on the smart, creative, satirical, and psychological. This year we are opening up submissions to accept international short films from anywhere in the world!
