TALLAHASSEE, FL – The Tallahassee Film Festival (TFF) has opened a call to artists for film submissions to the 48-Hour Film Contest that will run from Nov. 2-4. Filmmakers of all experience levels will have 48 hours to script, cast, shoot and edit a 5-minute film, following specific contest guidelines. The two-day creative marathon not only results in amazing films but also produces memories that will last a lifetime for the participants.
“The Tallahassee Film Festival is excitedly anticipating this year’s 48-Hour Film Contest, which each year attracts talented filmmakers from across the country,” said Lou Armesto, TFF Board Chair. “The contest is a fun event for both filmmakers and the public, who eagerly await their work.“ The fun begins in the lobby of the Mary Brogan Museum of Art and Science on Nov. 2nd, where orientation will take place at 7 p.m. There the three required elements of each film will be announced: theme, prop and line of dialogue, all of which must be prevalent in all submissions and congruent with the film’s storyline.
The Tallahassee Film Festival (TFF) is collaborating with the LeMoyne Center for Visual Arts to co-host a special event during the Hot Glass & Jewelry Invitational on Friday, Oct. 19 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Doors at the LeMoyne Center will open at 6 p.m. for the event. The $12 admission price (or $10 for LeMoyne members) will be collected at the door.
Only on the night of the 19th, guests will be offered two special treats not available during the regular run of the exhibit. At 7 p.m., as the stars come out on the back patio, there will be a sneak-peak showing of a new documentary, AI WEIWEI: Never Sorry, a documentary that chronicles artist and activist Ai Weiwei as he prepares for a series of exhibitions and gets into an increasing number of clashes with the Chinese government. With seating for the film limited to 100 viewers, those who want to be a part of the action should plan to arrive early.
