Tap Into Film

A 72 Hour Family Filmmaking Competition

Thursday, April 22 – Sunday, April 25, 2021


SOCAPA and Catamount Arts are joining forces once again to bring you our much-anticipated-annual Film Slam, but this year we are GOING BIG by STAYING SAFE!

GO BIG: Let’s face it, staying safe is the “big” (as in responsible) thing to do right now, which means our annual Film Slam will once again be virtual, viral and global! The event will be open to families anywhere in the world. After receiving 77 film submissions in 2020, we expect participation by an even larger number of family teams in 2021. More participation means an even larger online audience. Our prizes are getting supersized too, with cash and scholarship awards valued at over $6,500 and counting!

STAY SAFE: Due to the Coronavirus health emergency, nations across the globe are urging their citizens to stay safe as they roll our their vaccination programs by continuing to follow their local public health guidelines. Let’s all SLAM the CURVE by staying safe and making movies with our families. Do your part, and make some art!

As always, the event is FREE to all! But please do consider a donation to Catamount Arts. Catamount has had to temporarily close their doors for the first time in their 45 year history of supporting community arts and independent film in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. With your support, Catamount Arts will be hereafter the crisis, doing their part for our community’s recovery. Make a Donation
