National Film Challenge

Hot on the heels of the Insomnia Film Festival comes the National Film Challenge. A spin off from the 48 Hour Film Project in 2003, the National Film Challenge is similar in structure, but films are mailed in from anywhere in the country and screened online instead of in the local city.

Register by October 18th (spots may fill up earlier) for the competition weekend of October 19-22, 2007.

Also of note, the International Documentary Challenge is coming up in March ’08. Shoot a documentary from March 6-10, 2008 for the third annual iteration of this non-fiction filmmaking event. Finalists will be premiering at HotDocs in April.

But wait! There’s more:

A screening of the [2007] IDC films produced in the Washington DC area will take place on October 9, 2007 at the AFI Silver Theatre.

How’s that for filmfest goodness?
