24 Speed Filmmaking Competition

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.

The next 24 Speed Filmmaking Competition kicks off on Friday, January 24, 2020 at 5:30pm. Student teams are expected to show up in person at the Ford Classroom at the Reeder Media Center (located on the ground floor of Swem Library), whereas alumni teams can tune in via live Zoom. At the kickoff ceremony, each team will be given a prop and line of dialogue that must be used in their film, as well as a genre for their film.
