24 Hour Film Race – Boston Winners Announced

The concept of the 24 Hour Film Race is pretty insane.  Late on a Friday night, you’re e-mailed a theme (with a surprise element tossed in),  and you then have approximately 24 hours to write, shoot and edit a final 4-minute piece.  Insane, right?  Challenging, right?  An adrenaline-pumping blast, right?  Yes, yes and yes.  What’s cool about this particular film race is that winners in Boston, for example, go on to compete against winning filmmakers in other cities across the country and in Canada.  The final winners (1 through 20) receive cash and other prizes.  As a result of this cross-country competition, both films and filmmakers get some substantial exposure. Boston’s winners were announced this week, with congratulations going to 1st Prize winner ”I ♥ U” by Neoscape and other runners-up listed in order below: 1)  ”Moving On” by Castparty Productions 2)  “Double Edged Sword” by Mango 3)  ”P.H.O.N.E. 300K” by Electric Shark Dog 4)  ”Pallino” by Bait & Tackle To watch the winning films, go to  It’s not too late to register for film races in Portland (Oregon) and Toronto. Screenings (leading to more winners) will take place in Denver and Seattle.  Winners have also been announced in Chicago, Miami and Minneapolis (in addition to Boston).
