OCTOBER 12-14, 2018


2018 Presenting Sponsor:



We promote and encourage future artists and artisans in the art, media, and technology of filmmaking. We work hard to further public awareness and appreciation of motion pictures as an art form. We want to support the education of the general public in these areas by hosting annual film exhibitions, lectures, seminars, workshops, and other activities.


Challenge Begins October 4th, 2018

Filmmaking teams had just one weekend to make a short film. Writing, shooting, and editing must be completed within a 72 hour window beginning the evening of Thursday October 4th at 6pm and ending Sunday night at 6pm. This short production period puts the focus on quick decisions and decisive shooting. It also forces some of us to “just shoot it” with often outstanding results.
