Film Slam with Cinevic

The hot filmmaking competition starts Feb. 21 with registration, which is open until March 20. Then the fun begins.

Film Slam, CineVic’s 72-hour (or so) film production challenge is back with a vengeance this year.

The hot filmmaking competition starts Feb. 21 with registration, which is open until March 20. Then the fun begins.

At 6pm on March 21, registered writers are given the magic words/phrase to inspire a four- to six-page properly formatted script. These are emailed to CineVic by March 23 at 6pm.

Then on Sunday evening, registered filmmakers receive all the scripts, choose their top five, as well as their nomination for best script by midnight March 25.

On March 26, registered actors are invited to an open casting session. One casting director will run sides with actors who have agreed to be available over the weekend. Registered film teams are invited to watch and have access to a list of the actors. Actors who register are not guaranteed a spot.

On March 27 – it’s game on! The scripts are assigned to teams and they rush off to make movie magic. The results are due in Sunday at 4pm.

Film Slam reels are screened at the Vic Theatre at 7:30 pm (no minors). Tickets are $10.

Prizes will be announced for Best Film, Audience Favourite, Best Cinematography, Best Sound, Best Editing, Best Performance (female and male).

Filmmakers, writers and actors, head to cinevic.ca to find out more about registration costs and to find registration forms.
