The DVMISSION 48 hour film challenge is a distinct high point in the local film calendar and is coming around again this October. The challenge has been running for many years now and sees groups of filmmakers pitted against each other with the challenge to write, film and edit a short film in only a weekend. The teams all get the title, genre and line of dialogue at the starting line on Friday night and away they go. Once the challenge is complete there is DVMISSION LIVE, the screening event and awards ceremony for that year’s films where all the films are shown and everyone involved gets together.
The challenge is hugely popular and despite the incredibly tight production timescale produces some very high quality film production. If you feel like you up up for a heavily condensed weekend of creativity, fun and very late nights you can get involved and apply. The application details, this year’s timetable and all the rules are available HERE. We’re hoping to enter a Strong Island Media team this year, looking forward to it!
