The event that kicks everything off! Registered teams will arrive from 5.30pm to check in and receive their filmmaker pack. The presentation will begin at approximately 6pm, going through all the rules and boring stuff, then going through genre selection and revealing the mysterious Three Required Elements!

At the Kickoff Event each team draws TWO genres from a hat - one from Group #1 and one from Group #2 as listed below. Your team may decide which one to use for your film. For years we've had everyone's favorite pairing Musical or Western, but now each and every genre will be paired.

While you're here, why not relax and grab a drink from the bar? You're probably going to need it with the weekend that you're about to have!
