i48: Saturday, June 9, and Sunday, June 10

All of the films will be screened at The Flicks on Saturday and the best of the fest are showcased Sunday at The Egyptian Theatre

Treasure Valley film festivals of all shapes and sizes have come and gone, a few more successful than the rest. But i48, now in its 14th year, remains Boise's favorite. It doesn't hurt that the quality of the short films produced by makeshift film crews improves with each passing year.

The rules are a bit arcane. Each team is tasked with making a film in 48 hours or less, but the film must include: 1) a line of dialogue, 2) an outlandish prop and 3) a fictional character that the team doesn't learn about until the moment they begin putting together their movie. All of the films are screened at The Flicks on Saturday, June 9, and following a rigorous judging process, the best of the fest are showcased and awarded prizes in a gala screening at The Egyptian Theatre on Sunday, June 10.
