Tap Into Film


A 48 Hour Student Filmmaking Competition

SAVE THE DATE: April 27th-29th, 2018

Catamount Arts and The School of Creative and Performing Arts (SOCAPA) are excited to invite your participation in the upcoming TAP INTO FILM, 48 Hour Film Slam. Middle School, High School, and College aged students are invited to join us for this exciting and educational film-focused weekend. Student participants can join with no filmmaking experience or as seasoned filmmakers to compete for up to $750 in cash prizes.

The weekend's main event is a team competition where groups of 3-5 young filmmakers write, direct, edit and premiere a short film in just two days. In the end, a winner will be selected from each category by industry professionals for a cash prize. All scripting, shooting and editing must take place within the 48 hours, so teams must have spontaneity, time management and lots of ingenuity! Although the event is competitive, the environment is welcoming, supportive, and most importantly, fun!

New This Year: We are excited to be hosting this year's event at the Burke Mountain Hotel, where teams can STAY, LEARN and CREATE together! Teams planning on staying at the Hotel on Friday and Saturday night are asked to pay a $10 Registration fee per participant. There will not be an additional fee for the hotel. Please don't hesitate to request a fee waiver by emailing
