National film making challenge

Each year students take part in a nationwide film making challenge. Hundreds of teams write, shoot and cut a short film over the course of one weekend. After the films are complete and submitted, more than a million people view the creations in cinemas, online and on network television.

Film-makers do not know what genre they will be shooting until the start of the competition. All creativity (writing, shooting and editing) must be produced within 48 hours, beginning the Friday evening and ending on the Sunday evening at 7pm.
