48 Hour Film Screenings Tonight through Friday at Riverdale 10

We had a fun time over the weekend with 27 Teams competing and turning in their completed films all shot in just 48 Hours on Friday August 17-19. Filmmakers convened at Riverdale Theater on Friday night at 6pm and after drawing genres ranging from Comedy, Period Piece, to Time Travel, out of a hat, team leaders were given instructions on three elements to include in their films. Each film must include a prop of a melon or melons, a character named Tommy or Tammy Shuttles who is a singer, and the line of dialogue “What do we have here?” Filmmakers were then sent on their way to write, shoot, act, score, edit, and produce a 5-7 minute film to compete in the 48 Hour Film Project hosted by the Little Rock Film Festival. Starting tonight through Friday (August 22-24) those completed films (late and on time) will screen at 7pm at the Riverdale 10 Theater and Cafe.
