Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

12 Teams of filmmakers, with 2 Actors, and just 4 Hours to make a film.

Could you make a short film in just 4 hours?

We are looking for 12 brave teams to enter this fun and crazy filmmaking event. Your team needs to arrive at 11.30am with your shooting and editing equip, and a ‘Let’s make a movie right now!’ attitude. At high noon, your team will be provided 2 actors, a suggestion, and the clock will start ticking. You’ve 4 hours to return with your film of no longer than 4 mins, which will start screening to our industry panel of judges at 7pm that very evening, with awards about 9pm. (Between times, a buffet is provided for hungry teams!)

It’s a brilliant networking event, but more than that, it’s a celebration of creativity, ingenuity, guts and thinking on the fly – a challenge all filmmakers face as they try to create something from nothing (usually budget).

So, if you’re up for the challenge of the most creative day you can imagine, form a team, and grab your place in the best damn film making challenge on this planet or any other!
