Surrey Little Theatre host team member Loryn LeGear test runs camera equipment for the upcoming SLT 50 hour film challenge.

50-hour filmmaking contest returns to Surrey

Registration deadline approaching for Surrey Little Theatre's annual movie competition.

Budding and experienced filmmakers are invited to write, shoot and edit a five-minute movie – and possibly win $500.

Surrey Little Theatre is once again holding its 50 Hour Film Challenge. The fourth-annual event begins Oct. 7, when teams receive their randomly selected “inspiration package,” that includes a list of required surprise elements.

Over the next 50 hours, they will disburse and head out to various locations throughout the Lower Mainland to create and edit their films.

On Oct. 9, all teams must bring their finished products to the theatre for judging. Prizes will be awarded the following weekend (Oct. 15) at a Gala Filmmakers Reception, where all the short movies will be screened for the general public.

“The challenge is similar to the popular 48 hour film challenge format with the addition of an extra two hours” says event organizer, Brigitte Seib. “We welcome all community members to put together a five or more member team, dig out their camera equipment and editing software and come on out to take part in this exciting new event.”

The registration deadline is Oct. 2 and costs $100 per team. The early bird deadline is Sept 30 and costs $75.

Registration forms and rules are available at www.surreylittletheatre.com, or contact Brigitte Seib at brigitte.seib@surreylittletheatre.com for more information and to arrange payment or leave a message on the reservation line at 604-576-8451.
