54 Film Fest is a competition designed to help local filmmakers network, have an outlet for their creative talent, and ultimately be inspired to create better films within a competitive environment.
Teams are given 54 total hours to script, shoot, edit, and turn in their 4-7 minute short films. Prior to the start of the competition, team representatives meet for the Inception meeting where they receive three elements that must be used in their shorts: a prop, a line of dialogue, and an action.
The 54 Film Fest is a grueling competition, but everyone who competes declares it is extremely rewarding.

I can't believe something we made in 54 hours ended up so good. And to see it on the big screen was just, well, amazing.
All three of us are actually writing 3 different scripts for future projects. Your fest was the first thing we had done in 6 years, it got us extremely excited to start it up again. Thanks again!

The screening was great, the films were wonderful. I laughed, was spellbound, and even teared up once. Looking forward to next year's event.
