Named in honour of WIFF founder, Mark Boscariol, the 48-Hour FlickFest consists of a slate of short films shot and edited by local filmmakers and film lovers over one weekend. FlickFest is an intense, movie-making challenge. Supplied with a line of dialogue, a character trait and a prop, filmmakers are given 48 hours to submit their film. This is a juried competition with over $1,000 in prizes and the screening includes award presentations for eight awards. This challenge is accessible to any individual that wants to test their inner filmmaker.
“The end of the film, is the beginning– Mark Boscariol
