based on the Glass Eye Pix Creepy Christmas Advent Calendar
Once upon a time there was an advent calendar made of paper and glue and little die-cut windows. Behind the windows were 25 images of lonely dolls, sparkly skeletons, and other strange creatures caught celebrating the holidays in most unusual ways.
Then along came the idea to bring the toys to life in an advent-style online film festival to run from December 1 to the 25.
25 filmmakers were invited to participate. Each filmmaker received one of the photos from the printed advent calendar. This image corresponded to a date in December, which became the date their film would screen online. Boxes of old dolls and toys were sent around the world to each filmmaker. Diverse in their approach to the assignment and possessed of holiday spirit the filmmakers enthusiastically embraced their challenge and created 25 unique glimpses into a very Creepy Christmas.
