Since 2005, W&M Libraries has hosted the annual 24 Speed Contest. Students and alumni are invited to write, shoot, and edit a short film within a 24 hour time frame. This year's contest will kickoff on FRIDAY, MARCH 1 at 5:30 PM, so mark your calendars. 

As usual, each team is given a line of dialogue, a prop, and a genre. This year's kickoff will take place in the Ford Classroom on the ground floor of Swem Library. Alumni teams will be able to join the kickoff via Zoom. A zoom link will be sent to alumni registrants. 

Registration is open February 5 and closes February 29

Meanwhile enjoy the entries from last year.
