2010 Guerrilla Film Competition deadline is nearing

Can you write, shoot and edit a short film in 48 hours? If so, then you're up for the challenge of the Sarasota Film Society's Guerrilla Film Competition.

The competition will be May 21-23. Teams who enter - entry deadline is May 18 - will meet at Burns Court Cinemas 7 p.m. May 21. There, they will draw a random line of dialogue, a prop, a genre and an action. Then the clock starts. They will only have 48 hours to write, shoot and edit a film during the weekend featuring what was drawn. Teams must drop off their completed project at Burns Court. A panel of judges will look for creativity and originality.

The films will be screened around 10 a.m. May 29 at Lakewood Ranch Cinemas and will be followed by a wrap party and awards ceremony later that evening. First place prize is $500.

If you're interested, fill out the online registration and submit a payment of $50 (per team) at

The event is an effort to encourage filmmakers to produce quality works featuring area sights and sounds.
