About 

Since 2005, William & Mary LibrariesCharles W. Reeder Media Center has hosted the highly anticipated 24 Speed Filmmaking Competition. The rules are simple: write, shoot, and edit a short film in just 24 hours! The contest is open to W&M students and alumni, pros and amateurs alike, and is a chance to show your filmmaking chops on the big screen.
