Film makers from South Florida and beyond formed teams and, after randomly drawing a genre, were given a prop, character, and line of dialogue to include in their films. They then took off and had 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film. Now, the films are ready for public viewing. Come see the art, the talent, the production that is accomplished with adrenaline, caffeine, panic, and excitement. 
Whether novice or experienced, the participants were brave enough to attempt the challenge. Are you brave enough to watch the films? 
One screening, with a set of short films will be presented. After the screening, filmmakers will be available for a Q&A session.
Films are not rated and may not be appropriate for all audiences.
