i48 Film Festival

The Flicks on Saturday, June 8, and The Egyptian Theatre on Sunday, June 9

by

Take a film festival like Cannes, for example: Filmmakers from all over the world debut their movies for glory, prizes and distribution deals. On very rare occasions do these films have anything to say about Cannes itself. On that front, the i48 Film Festival sets itself apart. It's one for the amateurs (and semi-pros), and doesn't blush at cutting Boise and surrounding environs in on the action. Teams were given two days to start and finish a short films, each of which must incorporate four mystery elements—a line of dialogue, a prop, a character and a genre—unknown to the filmmakers beforehand. Catch all of the entries at The Flicks on Saturday, June 8, for $5 or a best-of selection at The Egyptian Theatre on Sunday, June 9, for $7.
