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 and High School 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 $1000 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!

Film slams provide an excellent opportunity for students to work creatively as a team. The time constraints of the event result in a hands-on experience that requires resourcefulness, flexibility, and quick thinking. Students come away with a complete short film, a network of other young filmmakers, and the confidence of having finished a seemingly impossible task in a short period of time.

TEAM REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, April 18th
