Create a short film in 24 hours! There will be amazing prizes to be won and an unforgettable experience to have!
The McMaster 24 Hour Film Festival has been around since 2012. Hosted by Lyons New Media Centre, the event is where teams of students will enter to compete for prizes. We are calling all aspiring filmmakers and creative minds to participate in the ultimate showdown of video production skills!
The format of the Kick-Off event starts with meeting at Lyons New Media Centre on Friday, February 10th, 2017 @ 4:00pm. You will be given your three key elements (a randomly assigned prop, line of dialogue and location) that you must incorporate into your short video and all other essential instructions for the competition.
Make sure you are able to attend the Kickoff!
(All information and questions you have can be asked there).
After you submit your short video on time, it will be processed and screened at the Awards Gala. You will have your final videos judged and voted by the audience, where winners will be selected based on the incorporation of the key elements and the impact/originality/creativity of the short film. There are amazing prizes to be won for the winners! The Awards Gala/Screening will be on Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 at McMaster University campus in Togo Salmon Hall B128.
Also, there will be refreshments to quench your appetite at the Awards Gala. There will be a selection of beverages (non-alcoholic) and Kernels popcorn to satisfy your appetite!
