Genre Drawings How It Works

Genre Requirement Four Points Film Project

Each team will get their choice between two assigned genres.

Everything begins on Friday night at 7 pm local time. You will receive an email with your genres and required elements for your film. Your film must be true to one of the genres you have been assigned.

Required Elements

In addition to drawing a genre, each team will be required to include an assigned character, prop and line of dialogue at the Kickoff Event.

Combining Genres

You may combine genres (e.g., a silent comedic buddy film) - however, your official assigned genre must be clearly represented in the mix.

Adherence to Assignment

Did you know judges base part of their scores on a film’s adherence to assignment? This refers to the genre and required elements.
