The weekend? 3 - 5 November 2017
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Melbourne, AU area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2018 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2018 Short Film Corner.
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!
Genre Group 1:
Coming of Age
Fish Out of Water
Time Travel Movie
Genre Group 2:
Film de Femme
