Colchester Film Festival hosts a global 60 Hour Film Challenge which takes place from the 1st – 4th September 2017 and is FREE for anyone to enter.

Registration for the 2017 challenge will open on the 1st July, so make sure to visit the site to register your team.

We challenge filmmakers from around the world to write, shoot and edit a film no longer than 5 minutes in just 60 hours. All the filmmakers are given is a title, line of dialogue and a prop/action that has to be included in the final film. The rest is up to you. It can be any genre or style so let get your creative juices flowing and produce a masterpiece.

The winners and runners up of the challenge will receive a variety of prizes from some of the world’s biggest film equipment and software manufactures worth more than £10,000 and the shortlisted films will be screened at the 2017 Colchester Film Festival on Saturday 4th November. Previous winners have gone onto achieve unprecedented success, direct feature films and get noticed by major production companies.
