K-State's Annual 48-Hour Film Challenge


So what is a 48-hour film challenge?

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.
