2nd Annual Snake Bite film Festival

Snakebite is hosting a weekend in which you and a team make a movie - write, shoot, and edit - in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a prop and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in - and teams celebrate. The film is then screened during the second annual ARTS RISING FESTIVAL!

Open to any age, gender, skill level, or background. All cast and crew must be volunteers.

The Official time period is 6:30 pm Friday August 10th to 6:30 pm August 12th. Opening gathering will start at 5:30pm Friday at 220 Manor Park Ave, (Leir House) to go over rules, team genre pick and team sign in.
