The exciting City Final for the Hamilton HP48Hours event. Come along to see the results of the regions most talented actors, directors, writers etc. after a furious 48 hours of filmmaking.
On the weekend of August 25th to 27th, over 40 teams of filmmakers from around Hamilton and the greater Waikato area (and Hauraki!) frantically conceived, created, and delivered a short film without any prior knowledge of the requirements.
The resulting shorts have been intensely scrutinized by our panel of judges, and tonight we will see the top ten films played, and awards presented to the cream of the crop. (On hand to present awards is our very own Mayor, Mayor Andrew King!). Awards will be presented for the best actors/actresses, directors, writers, musical scores etc, and the ultimate honors for the Best Film, which will win a package worth over $1500.00 (and the glorious APEE statue for endless bragging rights).
Note: due to the nature of the event, some of the content may not be appropriate for younger viewers - supervision is strongly recommended.
The event will kick off as close to 8:30 pm as possible - be there or be square!
Food and drinks etc will be available from the concession stand prior to the screening of the Finals.
