2016 Frantic48 Films


The following teams each produced a film project in the Peace Region as part of the third annual Frantic48 filmmaking competition in April 2016. Their films screened as part of the Reel Shorts Film Festival.

Congrats to all of the participating teams for making so many unique creative projects. We hope you continue to make films and we truly hope to see all of you back in October ready to play again. We want to especially thank team captains and their teams.

All thirteen teams completed their films, and nine completed and submitted their projects within the very difficult 48-hour window. All thirteen were screened as part of the 2016 Reel Shorts Film Festival and the qualifying films were judged by a jury and the audience.

Teams were given 48 hours to write, shoot, edit and deliver a 2-7 minute short film. Each team was assigned a random pairing of genres and all teams had to incorporate a prop (a key) and a line of dialogue (“What are you hiding?”).

Some teams spent more time polishing their films after the 48 hour challenge, which is heartily encouraged, and some of these posted clips reflect that. Not all films have been shared online, which is 100% at the discretion of the filmmakers, so this selection is incomplete.

Thank you to Community Futures for Sponsoring the Awards, and huge gratitude to Reel Shorts and GPLT for co-presenting this event with PRIMAA.

Award Winners
