64 HOUR FILM FESTIVAL

The 64 Hour Film Festival is a high-energy, action-packed, fun and exciting filmmaking project for high schoolers. Teams of students compete to make a film over a 64 hour time period - from Friday at 4:30pm to Monday at 8:30am.

 

Teams of filmmakers are assigned a genre, a character name, a prop, a line of dialogue, a sound effect, a camera angle, and have 64 hours to create a short film containing those elements.

The films are then screened at a premiere for friends and family. Recognition awards are given out at the screening and the audience votes for their favorite film.
