17th Annual 36 Hour Film Race


Objective – complete a film, within 36 hours by following the rules!

  • The rules are simple and all teams will obtain the final five elements during the kick-off meeting. The elements may include genre, prop, dialogue, location and character.
  • Then, watches are synchronized and you’re off in a “mad dash” to complete the film!
  • Films will be judged and in two weeks, we will screen the films and announce Best Film.
