Every year at about this time, you tell yourself, this is the year. Yes, this is the year when your creative cinematic genius is going to be fully realized and finally revealed to the world via the i48 Hour Film Competition and Festival. And yet, somehow you always manage to miss the deadline. This year, you have no excuse, because here's your reminder: The deadline is this Saturday, May 21. That's when your registration must be postmarked or hand-delivered to the Flicks.
Once registered, teams of filmmakers have 48 hours to write, cast, shoot and produce a four- to seven-minute original film, which will then be screened and judged at the Flicks a week later. The 10 best will then be shown at the Egyptian Theatre during an awards ceremony.
