The 72-hour filmmaking shakedown
Filmmaker Showdown finalists will screen their five-minute shorts at the Celluloid Social Club Screening on Mar. 12 at 8 p.m. at the Anza Club in Vancouver.
Like the Celluloid Club, the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival aims to connect the filmmaking community with an audience.
Every year filmmakers gather up a caffeinated-fueled crew to take part in the 72-Hour Filmmaker Showdown as part of the Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival every April. Artists are challenged to produce a three to five minute digital film set within a 100-kilometre radius of Whistler over the space of 72 hours. This red-eye competition is an exercise in patience and stamina as amateur and semi-professional teams battle it out for a finalist spot.
Finalist films will screen before an audience of 2,000 rowdies cheering on their favourite teams with one winner, Best of Show, chosen by an expert panel of judges to reap the rewards of exposure and $15,000 in prizes.
Advance online registration is available at http://whistler.mtv.ca under the Filmmaker Showdown link until Apr. 1. The entry fee is $50 per team.
Space is limited and with the popularity of this event ever increasing, it’s always a good idea to register early and not miss out on the filmmaking mayhem.
