July 19-21, 2019 – 48-Hour Mobile FREE Filmmaking Challenge. You have 48 hours to create a film on your mobile device. Three secret elements will be given shortly before the kick off and must be included in the film. Films are to be uploaded to YouTube. Filmmakers will be challenged to “market” their project and get their friends, family and fans to “like” and “comment” on their work. Prizes will be awarded for the best marketed film and the top judged films . Every 48 hour challenge film completed at the K-Days event will be eligible for screening at the ESFF @ KDays Film Festival on July 28. The top judged film, the film that has the best use of secret elements and the best marketed film will all be screened at the Edmonton Short Film Festival Gala on October 12.
