Beggar’s Banquet (Friday kickoff & Sunday film dropoff) & Monday, February 9, 2009 Public Screening Location TBD
For the eighth time in ELFF’s history (and our fourth time ever in the spring), filmmakers from the Mid-Michigan area will come together to write, shoot, edit, and premiere an original five-minute production in just 48 hours. At the start of the competition, participants are given specified elements to include in their film: a location, prop and line of dialogue. New this year, teams will have to draw a genre from among the following to be incorporated into their finished film: Comedy,
Drama, Horror, Road Movie, Romance, Sci-Fi, Spoof or Thriller.
ALL four of these elements must be incorporated into their film, and ALL production must occur during the allotted 48 hours.
