Tick Tick Tick. It’s almost here! A day all about love. No, not Valentine’s Day, we’re talking about the Nickel Independent Film Festival’s 48 Rom-Com Challenge and the love of making movies! On February 2 to 4, 2018, we’d love for you and your team to take part in the Rom-Com film challenge. True love rarely runs smooth, and sometimes the bumps are hilarious. Are you in?

The Challenge
Write, shoot, and edit a film, 5 minutes or less, in 48 hours from Friday February 2 at 6 pm to Sunday February 4 at 6 pm. To get the creative reels churning, the challenge starts with every team receiving an email containing a secret prop and line of dialogue that must be used in their short.

The Reward
All teams will have their completed films screen on Wednesday, February 12 at 7 pm (TBC, check back for details!). For more details or to register your team, contact Ruth Lawrence by email at nickelfestival@gmail.com

There is no fee to register but you must sign up by 1pm on Friday, February 2, 2018.

To register, all you do is email nickelfestival@gmail.com with the Subject Line: 48HR ROM-COM CHALLENGE 2017. Give us your name and contact info (email and best phone number)

You don’t need to provide all your team members yet but we’ll be in touch before the challenge starts to get all the details we need, and send you the info you need from us.
Full rules and for links to helpful videos to get you started will be posted here soon.
