Showdown in Chinatown
Hawaii’s premier 24 hour film festival event. Showdown in Chinatown is a excellent chance to showcase your talents for all actors, digital cinematographers, and designers.
The idea is simple each month the challenge requires you to create a theme around a genre that is provided, and may also include a set of props, dialogue, or specfic location.
After the challenge has been set filmmakers from around the globe in some cases, rush to write, shoot, edit, and author their DVD into a 3-5 minute film. Which in some case can be very taxing. Not all that enter make it to completion in the 24hr. timeline as any numerous situations can create failure.
When the deadline arrives at 10pm all those that are submitted in time are screened at Thirty Nine Hotel The winners are judged by their peers, by way of audience approval.
So break out your handy cam and shoot it.
The event takes place the third friday of every month in Honolulu’s historic chinatown district
Next Event: August 19th, 2006 @ 39 N. Hotel St., Honolulu, HI.
