Filmmakers in the Spokane and Coeur d'Alene area are invited to participate in the '50 Hour Slam', a film competition and festival designed to encourage both amateur and established filmmakers to stretch their creativity. The filmmakers will have fifty hours to write, develop, shoot and edit a 3 to 6 minute short-film. Actors for the films will be provided by local talent agencies. The kick-off of the '50 Hour Slam' will be at 7p.m. on Friday, April 1st at the Magic Lantern, located at 25 W Main Ave. downtown. Interested filmmakers should arrive at 7p.m. sharp because doors will be closed promptly at that time and the fifty hours will begin.
