The staff at the Theater at the Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences is offering the public a chance to make and star in their own movie productions. The 48 Hour Film Festival will be held April 9-11, 2021 and will allow residents to write, shoot and edit their movies before the film is screened in front of an audience at the Imperial Centre.
On Friday, April 9, 2021, teams will draw a genre from a hat, and will be given a character, prop and line to include in their films. Submissions of the film must be received by 6pm on Sunday, April 11, 2021, and the screenings will begin Sunday at 8pm.
Said Artistic and Managing Director Brooke Edwards: “This high-octane competition has been happening all over the world for 20 years. If you have a cell phone, a creative mind, and a team to work with, you can make a short film in 48 hours.”
Registration is free, but is required for the event via imperialcentre.org.
Winners will be chosen by a jury and awarded prizes.
