48-Hour Film Festival

Cardinal Pictures is hosting a 48-hour Film Festival. No equipment is necessary. First-time filmmakers are heavily encouraged to participate. All participants must apply individually, but mutual partner requests will be honored when forming teams. Teams will have 48 hours to conceptualize, shoot, and edit a 3-minute film.

Participants will receive the festival theme at the kickoff meeting at 3 PM, Friday, April 29, 2022 in Exley Science Center 150. Films will be due at 5 PM, Sunday, May 1, 2022, and screened for the Wesleyan community at 7 PM that night.

Audiences will vote on awards in various categories, and winning teams will receive prizes. Whether you’ve never been on set or you’re a post-thesis senior, spend next weekend making a movie. For the sake of equitable teams, sign-up is mandatory. The form is linked here.
