You can expect filmmakers from all experience levels to participate in the competition. We aim to have a award ceremony and screening that will make any film maker feel like a big time movie producer with red carpet experience and more!
Meet and Greet.
The Kick Ass Meet and Greet is one of the best Film Networking events in all of Southern Colorado. We will be networking and award filmmakers from our sister festival "Flick-a-Mania" in our 150 capacity theatre, with food and drinks. This is where people can form teams and fill slots that may be missing on their team! We invite Actors, Filmmakers, Makeup artists, musicians, and more! Filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films into Flick-A-Mania.
What is a Film Festival?
Our 72 Hour Film Festival will have unlimited team members but only 72 hours to create an original short film. This means you will be able to gather a team of Videographer, Screenwriters, Cinematographers, Actors, Editors, and who ever else you may need to come up with a film in just 72 hours using the prompts, subjects, and lines, we will provide you at the beginning of the competition.
Don't have a team?
Many people complete this task solo but it helps to have a team, this is totally up to you. However if you need team mates we will be hosting a "Meet and Greet " at Wake Up, we will be awarding films for our sister festival "Flick-a-Mania" and giving you the opportunity to network with other creators, actors, and writers. This is a great place to see who you will be competing against as well as find a team you can be apart of or create a team with the others who may not have a team. Feel free to email us at email@example.com to be featured below as a wildcard team member we will be happy to help find you a team!
