Oh, and, hey...The Detroit Windsor International Film Festival may be in its inaugural year, but we're packing a lot into this first event!
The first shot takes place a week before the actual festival, on Friday, June 20 at 7pm, with the "DWIFF 48 Hour Film Challenge".
At the College for Creative Studies Anderson Auditorium, around 20 registered film teams will compete for cash and prizes, honor and glory, by creating a short film in less than 48 hours.
Each team will be given certain criteria which must be included in their finished films. All entries will be judged and the top 3 teams will be eligible for the booty and acclaim.
More importantly, all completed entries will also be screened on Sunday, June 29th, at 2pm, in the CCS Anderson Auditorium, for friends, fans and family to enjoy. Come down and see what local filmmakers can come up with in record time. The cost of the screening is a measley $8, ($6 for seniors and students).
Also, believe it or not, there is still time to enter your own team! Click HERE.
Or you can show up at the Start and offer your services as an actor, makeup artist, writer or maybe an production assistant. Many teams are already formed, but you'll never get your big break if you never show up.
The DWIFF encourages the public (that'd be you) to come and cheer on these enthusiastic competitors as they write, cast, shoot, edit, score, publish and deliver their films within a very short 48 hours.
See you at the theater!
