Call to filmmakers: Make a movie in 2 days

Another 48-Hour Film Challenge is just around the corner. The annual event challenges teams of filmmakers to show what they can put together in a two-day window, with registration taking place Friday, Oct. 5, at Alaska Experience Theater.

Registration begins 6:30 p.m., and the prompts to be included in each film will be announced at 7 p.m. Films must be turned in as digital files no later than 7 p.m. Oct. 7.

There’s a $20 entry fee for each team, with films not to exceed 10 minutes. The event’s Facebook page says that teams outside of Anchorage will be able to enter without being present, but details aren’t available yet. Each movie screens Friday, Oct. 12, at the Alaska Experience Theater, followed by an awards ceremony.
