A little different. Not a film festival but a competition for young filmmakers and students of all backgrounds to challenge themselves creatively. In this festival, you will be given a genre, character, prop and line of dialogue that you must adhere to while creating a complete short film in a period of only 72 hours. This entails: writing an original script using the assigned elements, shooting, editing and delivery of the completed project.
Parrish Art Museum, Guild Hall, Greenport Auditorium
