You are stuck at home! Why not make a movie?!?!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


We are making CREATE's 48-Hour Film Fest COVID-19 friendly!! To accommodate social distancing, we are taking this year's competition online. Participate remotely as we challenge filmmakers from around the world to put their skills to work!

Over the course of just one weekend, teams that meet your community's gathering guidelines will concoct and produce a short film that is then screened for a global audience via CREATE Portage County's Facebook Live immediately after the close of competition.

To add to the fun, we will draw details -- the genre, a line of dialogue, some stock footage, maybe a prop or character -- that your team will receive in an email right as the timer starts!

Registration is $50 per team. Week-of registration costs $75. Teams can be of any size as long as you stay in compliance with social distancing recommendations for your community. Collaboration and team bonding is part of the fun but we are emphasizing public health and safety first and foremost. Team captains will receive further details on the event when you register.
