About the 64 Hour Film Festival
The 64 Hour Film Festival is a high-energy, action-packed, fun and exciting filmmaking project for high schoolers. Teams of students compete to make a film over a 64 hour time period - from Friday at 4pm to Monday at 8am.
Teams of filmmakers are assigned a genre, a character name, a prop, a line of dialogue, a sound effect, a camera angle, and have 64 hours to create a short film containing those elements.
The films are then screened at a premiere for friends and family. Recognition awards are given out at the screening.
The 64 Hour Film Festival serves as a great fundraising opportunity for your school. This event takes very little preparation time and involves lots of kids across all areas of the student body. Students learn a lot about filmmaking and teamwork in a very short amount of time.
