K-State's Annual 48-Hour Film Challenge

The 2022 Film Challenge is on! This year, in honor of the Gordon Parks exhibit at the Beach Museum, our theme is based on a quote from photographer and filmmaker Gordon Parks--"Kansas: All the Beauty in the World to Work With." Mark your calendars for March 24th @5:30pm for the annual kick off and March 31st for the Red Carpet event @5pm. Both events will be held at Town Hall in Leadership Studies as we return to in-person events!

Stay tuned to our social media for more info to come!


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.
