On Sunday Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. all teams will bring in their finished product to Surrey Little Theatre for their chance at prizes including a Best Film Top Prize of $500.

Prizes will be awarded the following weekend on Saturday, Oct. 15 at a Gala Filmmakers Reception with screenings of all films open to the general public. Screening tickets are limited and will be advance sales.

Registration deadline is Oct. 2 — $100 team;  early bird Sept. 30 — $75 team. Challenge weekend will run from Friday, Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. to Sunday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m.
