When: June 11-12 2016
Right about the time this edition of Boise Weekly was going to press, a few dozen local filmmakers were hopefully getting some shut-eye—they had just completed the round-the-clock insanity that is the i48 film competition and festival. When i48's founders first dreamed up the idea of sending filmmaking teams on an Amazing Race-type 48-hour marathon, they thought it would fly under the radar, attracting maybe six teams—eight, tops. More than 30 teams showed up that first year and 13 years later, the teams (and films) keep coming. The end result is screenings of three bundles of films on Saturday, June 11, at The Flicks and a "Best in Show" screening, along with awards, on Sunday, June 12, at The Egyptian.
