48 Hour Aftermath

Our film screened last night at AFI ("MVP"). Unfortunately, the movie was handed in late due to a technical glitch, so we weren't eligible for any awards except the audience appreciation award. Still it was nice to see it on the big screen with a large audience. Ours was the only film to feature kids as actors/directors/writers (with the guiding wisdom of adults of course). Thankfully our genre was Sci-Fi and not Romance or Drama. In total 12 films were shown during our section (out of 100 entrants total?), and some of them were well done and very imaginative (for 48 hours). I think competition will be stiff. The screenings have been going on all week and the winner will be announced shortly after.

After the screening we were told that Visa has come on board as a sponsor, so whoever wins the grand prize finale (across how many cities, I am not yet sure) will win $7500. Nice! This whole project has been and is growing rapidly (check out how the number of entrants is growing over the years since the first one in 2001). If you ever get a chance to participate as either a creator or audience member, definitely do so.
