About the Event
"THE 2023 GUERILLA FILMMAKING CHALLENGE" REGISTRATION AND CRITERIA REVEAL WILL BE DONE ONLINE WITH LIVE SCREENING EVENT DETAILS COMING SOON!
Attention Utah-based filmmakers of all ages and all skill sets; Have you ever wanted to make a short film but weren’t sure where to start? If this is the case, then the Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge might just be right up your alley.
Essentially, filmmaking teams are given criteria and a few rules and guidelines, and then…It’s off to the cinematic races. Filmmaking teams will have just over a month to create a 5-minute short film using any resources available to them. If you’re newer to the game, fear not as the folks at Film and Media Alliance of Southern Utah and Southern Utah’s Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge are always but a call away for advice and assistance.
Adding to the magic of the overall Guerilla Challenge experience is our screening event. That’s right! After all the completed Guerilla shorts are submitted, these creative offerings will be showcased on the big screen in front of what we’re confident will be a wildly enthusiastic crowd. What’s more, there will be cash prizes awarded to the strongest films of the bunch.
The shorts will be voted upon by an esteemed panel of judges and we’ll also throw an Audience Choice award into the mix. What’s more, the winning film will receive a premiere slot at Desertscape International Film Festival: Year 5. Trust us when we tell you that experiencing these films in a theatrical environment is one of the most wonderful aspects of this process.
In terms of criteria, what might the 2023 Summer Edition of the Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge have in store for participants? You’ll find out when registration opens on Thursday, May 4th at 6 PM (MST.) It’s only $45 per filmmaking team (the first 10 participants to sign up will get $5 off. Use Coupon at checkout: SUMMERGUERILLA) and each submission will come with one free ticket to the Guerilla Screening event which will take place on June 17th at The Electric Theater. As far as said criteria, again, no clues here (we don’t want to spoil the surprises) only to say that if you’re interested in taking part in the upcoming Challenge, register sooner rather than later because there will be a couple of very cool incentives for those who sign up between Thursday, May 4th at 6 PM (MST) and Saturday, May 6th at 11:59 PM (MST.) Among these incentives; An extra minute towards your project’s running time. This is to say nothing of the fact that we’ll be limited to 30 total sign-up slots, and given the popularity of the Challenge through the years, those spots are likely to fill up relatively quick.
The Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge is a wonderful opportunity to create but it’s also all about the art of collaborating, problem-solving, and thinking quick on your feet. Furthermore, it’s a great way to develop storytelling skills whether you’ve made a film before or not.
We hope to see familiar faces and new participants in equal measure when the 2023 Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge Registration portal opens on Thursday, May 4th at 6 PM (MST.) You’ll be able to locate the Registration link here on this event page, over at fmasu.com, or on Southern Utah’s Guerilla Filmmaking Challenge Facebook page.
Don’t forget to spread the word amongst your filmmaking friends!
