4 Hour Film Challenge

The Suggestibles present The 4 Hour Film Challenge

BOOK ONLINE: https://bookwhen.com/newcastleimprovfestival/e/ev-s5v9-20190804120000

When: Sunday 4th August 2019
£20 per team
Age Recommendation:
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).

Full rules at Newcastle Improv Festival 4 Hour Ticket page. See the actors taking part.

Watch a short doc from a prior 4-hour film challenge.


From Tuesday 30th to Sunday 4th August, Alphabetti Theatre becomes Newcastle Improv Festival’s hub. Open from 11am to late-at-night, with 20+ improv shows, workshops and activities for kids and for grown-ups from a brilliant array of local and national artists.

Newcastle Improv Festival runs from 27th July to 4th August at 5 participating venues. Brought to by the Suggestibles, celebrating their 15-year anniversary with a festival of fun and friendship.
