24 Hour Film Challenge
Markham Teen Arts Council’s annual 24H Film Challenge is back for 2021!
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!
This year, to account for health and safety issues, additional guidelines will be released to ensure the filmmaking is socially-distanced.
