15TH LDS FILM FESTIVAL 2016
MARCH 2-5, 2016 | SCERA CENTER, OREM


24-HOUR MARATHON GOES INTERNATIONAL

For the first time this year, everyone around the globe can participate in the 24-Hour Filmmaking Marathon. You don't have to be physically present at the start of the competition.

Every year dozens of groups participate, and all finished films are screened during the LDS Film Festival to a crowd of several hundred people. Past entries have gone on to play at film festivals nationwide. Every participating group has 24 hours to write, shoot and edit a 4-minute short film.

We will kick off the marathon on Friday, February 19, 2016, at the Scera Center for the Arts in Orem, Utah. If you won't be able to be there in person, we will post the theme, object, and dialogue line on this website and participants can drop off or upload their finished films 24 hours later on Saturday, February 20, at 10:30 a.m.
