The annual '60 Hour Film Challenge' begins from 1st – 4th of September 2017.

Filmmakers from across the world are challenged to write, shoot and edit a film no longer than 5 minutes in length in just 60 hours. The challenge is free to enter and teams can register online (www.60hourfilmchallenge.com) until the 31st August.

The challenge begins on Friday 1st September at 9pm (UK Time). Teams will receive an e-mail containing a title, line of dialogue and prop/action they must include in their films. Each team has to make their films over the weekend (1st-4th September) and upload their final films to our Vimeo group no later than Monday 4th 9am (UK Time). The shortlisted films will be screened and the winners announced at Colchester Film Festival on Saturday 4th November.

The challenge will be judged by our expert panel, directors Olly Blackburn (Donkey Punch), Tom Geens (Couple in a Hole), The Blaine Brothers (Nina Forever) and producer Jennifer Handorf (Prevenge).

Entering the challenge is a great way to get noticed, films from the challenge have gone on to feature at festivals around the world. Rob McLellan’s 2012 entry ‘Love and All That’ went onto inspire MGM’s feature film ‘Abe’, which is currently in pre-production.

Winning teams will receive over £10,000 worth of prizes which have kindly been donated from: Adobe, AKM Music, Beachtek, BlueStarProducts, Boris FX, Boxx TV Ltd, Cartoni, Cinedeck, Contour Design, Daz 3D, EditShare, FilmConvert, Filmstro, FXGuide, IndieFlix, Lenspen, Logickeyboard, Loopmasters, MindShift Gear, Musicbed, Peli, PowerProduction Software, ProMediaGear, RØDE Microphones, Snapperstuff, Spiffy Gear, Stan Winston School of Character Arts, Toon Boom Animation, Vid-Atlantic and Vocas Systems.
