Audience Award Judging is Closed.  Award Winner to be announced July 16th.

For the 2020 CATV-WRIF 48 Hour Film Slam Competition

These local independent filmmakers have jumped over lots of hurdles to make their oeuvres d’art this year.  They only had 48 hours from start to finish to make a five-minute film.  They were stuck with producing it in a film genre that they randomly selected, had to use an orange as a prop, AND had to incorporate the phrase “As they always say…” into their film.

But to top it all off, the filmmakers had to produce their films SAFELY because this competition continued through the pandemic stay-in-place orders. This challenged their creativity in interesting ways.  Bravissimi to all the filmmakers! The community applauds your creativity and bravery.  Now time to vote for your favorite…
