Film, Friends, Camera rolling…..48 hours to test your filmmaking skills and win a prize!
Mulgrave ZOOM Film Festival is in its 12th year and has one of the highest participation rates of any student film competition in the province of British Columbia. Filmmakers have 48 hours to plan, shoot and produce a finished film. During the tension-packed 48 hours students will conceptualize, write, shoot, edit, post and drop-off their (up to) six-minute film to be judged by BC industry professionals. Zoomfest films are a true look into today’s youth culture, last year there were over 100 films from more than 40 BC schools
