14th Annual 24-Hour Video Race 
Presented by the Video Association of Dallas

The 24 Hour Video Race is a fun filmmaking competition in which teams of video makers have 24 hours to write, shoot, edit and score an original short film.

The 2015 24-Hour Video Race will begin at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas/Mockingbird Station Friday on March 27th at 11:59pm. Objective: complete a digital film within 24 hours. The rules are simple and all teams will obtain the final five elements during the kick-off video viewing at midnight. The announced elements will include: a theme, a prop, some dialogue, an action and a character.

The race concludes 24 hours later with a mad dash to the finish line back at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. Teams will hand in an H.264 QuickTime file on a USB flash drive that we will provide.

All of the films that make it by the midnight deadline will be screened at the Angelika and compete for awards and bragging rights. Our judges will screen the films and announce the finalists over the next week.  All completed films will be screened on Tuesday, March 31st, and Wednesday, April 1st. Finals will be Thursday, April 2nd at the Angelika.

The winning videos will be highlighted on You+Media Dallas, and eligible to be screened on KERA Channel 13’s Frame of Mind,
