WHAT IS IT? HOW DOES IT WORK?

On Oct. 20, we will announce a theme, a line of dialogue and an object that must be included in each submission, e.g. Autumn winds blowing, “That’s too much” and a baseball bat. After this announcement is made, filmmakers will have 48 hours to create their 3-5-minute film.

On Sunday, Oct. 22, filmmakers will submit their finished product and, over the next several days, they will be viewed by a panel of judges who will determine the overall winner and runner-up.

On Saturday, Oct. 28, the top 25 submissions will be screened at the Giant Screen Theater, at which time the winner and runner-up will be announced. In addition, a special People’s Choice award will be selected based on audience vote that night.

WHO CAN ENTER?

Anyone may enter. All it takes is a passion for filmmaking or storytelling — and a lot of energy to get it all done in 48 hours.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ENTER?

$10 registration fee

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?

The overall winner will receive a trophy and cash prize. The runner-up will also receive a trophy and cash prize and the People’s Choice award winner will receive a trophy.
