48 Hour Film Frenzy

Join us on the last weekend of June for this year's 48 Hour Film Frenzy 🔥 Join one of the three groups who will write, shoot, and develop a 4-minute short film using black & white 16mm film stock over one frenzied weekend. Friday evening will kick off with a Bolex 101 workshop covering camera basics, operation, analogue film specifics, as well as how to develop 16mm Black & White film with filmmaker Matt Ripplinger. Participants will come away with a finished film and solid know-how around analog film shooting, developing & editing. 

At the end of the weekend, all film will be sent away to Montreal for scanning. Once the digital file is returned, participants will have 2 additional hours to complete their editing.

Later this summer we will have a film showing at the RPL Film Theatre, in conjunction with their digital version of the 48 Hour Film Frenzy for the big screen premiere of your work.
