Surrey Little Theatre’s 50-Hour Film Challenge takes place Nov. 8

50-hour film challenge ready to roll

Surrey Little Theatre hosts event Nov. 8; early registration ends Oct. 25.

It’s nearly time for the 6th annual 50-Hour Film Challenge, presented by Surrey Little Theatre.

Teams pick up their ‘inspiration’ package Friday, Nov. 8 at Surrey Little Theatre, then head off to write, shoot and edit a five-minute film that includes all the surprise elements.

Three nights later on Nov. 10, teams bring their completed films back to compete for prizes, including $500 for best film. The prizes are awarded at a gala reception Nov. 15.

Anyone who would like to participate is invited to put together a five person – or larger – team.

Early-bird registration ends Oct. 25. The registration deadline is Nov. 4. Rules and registration forms are available at www.surreylittle theatre.com, or leave a message at 604-576-8451.

“The challenge is similar to the popular 48-hour film challenge formats with the addition of an extra two hours,” organizer Brigitte Seib says. “The concept began five years ago as a new initiative during Surrey Little Theatre’s 50th season of life theatre.”

The inaugural film challenge was a huge success, launching a new autumn tradition, and a new avenue for the community to express its creative side.

It’s an all-ages competition. Past filmmakers include teams with members as young as 12 years old, teams from local high schools and film schools, and even a band of thespians who learned the filmmaking process on the fly.
