Due October 13th, 2017 - The Lost Episode Festival Toronto (LEFT) is once again hosting the 50 Hour Film Competition - a sleep deprived filmmaking marathon weekend in which you and your team have an unforgettable time writing, directing, shooting, and editing a complete short film in just 50 hours.

In honor of Halloween, the competition will be centered on horror genre short films. You can make your five-minute short film straight Horror, Horror/Comedy, Horror/Sci-Fi, etc ... but it MUST be Horror! Extra points for using the MOST Blood!

Timing
Friday September 29th at 7PM until Sunday October 2nd at 9PM

*** OR ***

Friday October 6th at 7PM until Sunday October 8th at 9PM

*** OR ***

Friday October 13th at 7PM until Sunday October 15th at 9PM

Whichever weekend you choose, the competition will begin on a Friday at 7pm (YOUR local time). Every registered team is simultaneously emailed a character, a line of dialogue, and a prop, that MUST be included in their film. Teams have only 50 hours (or less) to complete and submit their film, online or in person.

Registration Fees
$125 CAD (about $99 USD) per team. Registration is limited - register early to secure your desired date.
