K-State's Annual 48-Hour Film Festival/Competition

The K-State 48 Film Festival kicks off the 2017 competition year with workshops designed to help all current K-State students looking to brush up on their video production skills or learn the basic techniques of filmmaking, in preparation for the annual festival.

So what is a 48 hour film festival?

As the name implies you and a small group of friends have just 48 hours to create an original story (2-6 minutes in length) of any genre. The film could be about anything, but must include four creative elements. 

48 hours later you return your film to be judged and prepped for the film festival exhibition and awards ceremony. All films will judged by professional filmmakers throughout the Midwest, and prizes will be awarded in several categories including the Audience Choice Award.

The K-State 48-Hour film festival will kick-off on April 6, 2017 at 5:30 pm with films due by 7pm, Saturday April 8th. The Premiere and Awards Ceremony will be on April 13, 2017. More details to come.
