EVERY NIGHT is OPENING NIGHT
EIFF 2014 / 24/One Filmmaking Challenge

EIFF 2014 / 24/One begins in...

5 months 2 days 18 hours 43 minutes

2013... Mayor Stephen Mandel announces PHRASE at this year's 24/ONE kick-off!

                                      

 ABOUT 24/ONE – 24 Hours.  One Day.  And tons of memories, creating 1 short film!

On September 21, 2013 @ 11am, thirty-five (35) teams signed up for our annual 24-hour filmmaking challenge!  24/One Producer, Joshua S., announced the PROP -- each team received a $5 to purchase a PUMPKIN PIE -- a THEME -- Thanksgiving -- and informed teams they could choose their own GENRE this year.  The following Sunday, just 24-hours later, thirty-one (31) teams dashed across the finish line with their 6-minute (or less) short film.  Of those, ten (10) will be selected for the TOP 10 24/ONE World Premiere screening on SATURDAY, Sept. 29 @ 6:30pm. The chance to see your film on the big screen? Priceless. The possibility you'll know if you make it until you sit down that night and watch each film selected? No chance. Since Year 3 we've handed out awards for Best Actor and Actress, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score,  Best Art Direction or Use of Props, Best Writing. The audience chooses the Best Film by voting on their favourite. Bragging rights and $500 goes to the winner.

2014 10th Anniversary Registration opens in MAY!
