Thursday To-Do: 48 Hour Film Festival

Posted By on Thu, Aug 26, 2010 at 2:18 AM


7 p.m., 9 p.m.; Riverdale 10. $10.

Again, it's over before it's barely begun. But that's the nature of the beast known as the 48 Hour Film Festival. Once a year, the film project returns Little Rock, banding together teams of friends, co-workers, families and college students to write, produce, perform and edit a short film in a whirlwind, Red Bull-fueled weekend of competitive cinema. The catch? Teams are given a required character, one required spoken line, a prop and a film genre to build their film upon. This year, teams were given a camp counselor named "Geoff" or "Georgia Cook," a tire or a wheel as a prop and "here we go again" as the films' "frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a damn" coup de dialogue. This year, 21 teams entered, including the reigning champs here at our paper, spearheaded by the Andrei Tarkovsky of the Arkansas Times, our senior cineaste, David Koon. Screenings are 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Thursday (Group A) and Friday (Group B).
