There’s not an awful lot you can do in 48 hours. You could get halfway through all of Lost, two sevenths of the way through all the Doctor Whos or have just enough time to track down a killer, as proved by Eddie Murphy - let alone, make a movie!
Alas there’s a group of local filmmakers who’ve defied the odds, given up on Sawyer’s plight and traded in the couch for a camera for two days of intense movie making. These filmmakers will join more than 60,000 people from 120 countries to see who can make the best short film in a weekend – they’ve even got a chance to be screened in Cannes 2014.
The Judith Wright Centre will be debuting these Brisbane entries over two big nights, 4-5 October. Check out the screening program here and get behind a bunch of up and coming JJ Abrams.
