24 Hour-ish Scavenger Film Festival Tonight

Tonight, Flicker Theatre & Bar, in association with FilmAthens, presents a screening of all the entries in the 24 Hour-ish Scavenger Film Festival. Each participating team created an under-seven-minute film in 24(ish) hours. Filmmaking teams had to follow three guidelines: utilize a designated prop, include a given piece of dialogue and a secret third requirement. (Christopher Walken impression? Butt-chugging scene? Who knows.)

The audience and judges’ favorites will receive cash prizes (disclaimer: I’m one of the four judges). The screenings begin at 10 p.m., and the event is FREE. You know what to do.
