The Suggestibles present The 4 Hour Film Challenge
When: Sunday 4th August 2019
Tickets: £20 per team
Age Recommendation: Adults
Running Time: 4 hours
Wanted: 12 Teams of filmmakers. We’ve got 24 Actors. You’ve got 4 Hours.
Could you make a short film in just 4 hours?
At noon, we provide you with a suggestion and two pro actors. You've then got 4 hours to run off and make your mini movie, screened to our live audience, industry panel of judges and your competitors the same night. You need a ‘let’s make a movie right now’ attitude, and your own filming and editing equip. You can come hi-tech, or shoot on your phone. It's up to you!
Courtesy of Picture Canning North, hungry teams are rewarded with a buffet and then it’s showtime at 7pm, and the trophy could be yours!
It’s a brilliant networking event, but more than that, it’s a celebration of creativity, ingenuity, guts and thinking on the fly – a challenge all filmmakers face as they try to create something from nothing (usually budget).
