24 Hour Film Race Films

Film Racing is an international competition that challenges filmmakers around the world to create short films in a specific period of time (24 Hours or 100 Hours) based on a surprise theme, prop, and action assignment.  


From 10:00pm on June 24 until 10:00pm on June 25, filmmakers around the world created 5 minute short films based on this year's theme (A Second Chance), action (pushing a button), and prop (a deck of cards).


The top 24 films will be screened and awards presented as part of the Marietta International Film Festival.
