48-hour film challenge begins January 12

December 29, 2011

Interested in making films? Want to put your skills to the test? Then sign your team up for the Prairie Grass Film Challenge sponsored by Dordt College. The film challenge is a flurry of activity where teams have 48 hours to write a story, shoot, and edit a five- to eight-minute film based on criteria emailed to them at the start of the competition.

The challenge begins January 12 at 4 p.m. and is open to anyone high school age or above interested in creating a short film. Participants do not have to be accomplished in filmmaking, just interested in having creative fun. Details, registration, and past films can be found here.

The Prairie Grass Film Challenge is a way that students at Dordt College and throughout the country can participate in a hands-on learning experience and create films worth watching. Because details and submission is all done via email and online, teams all across the country can participate. Last year, teams were from as near as Sioux Center and Sioux Falls and as far as California and Delaware.

A free public screening and awards ceremony will take place February 17 on the campus of Dordt College.
