The OCC Art Collective invites students to express their creativity in writing, performing, shooting, and editing a short film in this 48 hour film festival. Films will be judged by a panel of professional film producers and discriminating film consumers. This festival is open to teams of OCC students, alumni, and the Joplin community, provided an OCC student or alumnus is on the team. The event will culminate with film screenings and an awards show at 7:00 pm on Monday, April 12.
The competition begins at 3:00 p.m. Friday, April 9, when the theme is announced to registered teams. Teams will have 48 hours from that time to write, shoot and edit a 3-5 minute film illustrating the theme in a 3-part structure (distinct beginning, middle, and end). Teams must:
have written permission to use any locations, actors, and music
include an OCC student in a significant role in the production
submit a script and/or storyboard as well as documentation of the film’s credits (actors, original music, production team members and roles) by Sunday, April 11, at 3 p.m.
Awards will be presented in the following categories:
