It is NOW time for you to make your own memorable moment in filmmaking history and compete in the top tear of speed filmmaking!  This year HFPC is bringing back The Speed Filmmaking Contest for one last time on May 25th, so do not miss out on your opportunity.  This year film teams will have only seven hours to write, shoot, and edit an entire short film, and then have it screened on a large movie theater sized screen at the the end of the evening and in front of a live audience and a judge's panel.  The judge's panel will determine the winning film, and that film team will be crowned the very last SFC Champions in the history of the Contest!  The whole event will also be broadcasted live for the whole world to see the film that you come up with in only seven hours.

THE 2024 PRIZES

1.) The SFC Championship Rings (each winning Team member will receive one)

2.) $500 CASH 

REGISTERING AS INDIVIDUAL

You will be placed on a team the day of the competition.  When registering as an individual you can either select crew, on air talent, or both.  Then you will more than likely have a part in whatever you select in the production your team will produce.  You can also be placed on a team with a friend, just put the friend's name somewhere on the registration form below.

REGISTERING AS A TEAM

You are limited to 9 members on your team, but there is no minimum team member number requirement.  You must provide your own equipment, and you must provide a team name at the time you submit registration.
