All-Nighter 24 Hour Film Festival

Congratulations to all who participated in the Film and Media Studies’ All-Nighter 24 Hour Film Festival! Students undertook the monumental task of writing, producing, and editing a short film within a 24-hour time frame. With such a short window to make a movie, students’ creativity was on full display as they ran around campus filming into the early hours of the morning. 

To make sure the films were made during the 24-hour period, students had to include a secret prop and lines of dialogue. This year’s prop was a rubber chicken, which sat (or squeaked) center stage in every film. Each team used the prop in unique and interesting ways: as a vehicle for self-reflection, a haunting comfort toy, or as a mafia boss (just to name a few).
