24 Hour Film Challenge
Markham Teen Arts Council’s annual 24H Film Challenge is back for 2023!
The 24-Hour Film Challenge is one of the Markham Teen Arts Council’s signature events that unites teens across the city to celebrate the art of film-making.
Teens compete in teams to create the best film, incorporating a given line of dialogue, prop, and sound effect—all within a 24 hour deadline. Formal film-making experience is not required—visual storytellers of all experience levels are welcome to participate! If you are interested, please sign up below!
