2012 T24 Project Screening
Thursday, March 1 at Innis Town Hall
Advanced Ticket sales have ended. Tickets can be purchased for $12 at the door starting from 6pm on Thursday, March 1 at Innis Town Hall.
The T24 Project challenge was held on Friday February 10 to Saturday February 11. Fifteen teams of local young filmmakers registered to compete in the challenge of making a short film under a 24 hour time frame and twelve made it back with a completed film.
This year's theme is how cinematic narratives, genres and form can work to expose and deconstruct the myths and ideologies surrounding an urban cityscape such as Toronto. Filmmakers produced work with observations on cultural clashes, pressures of living in an urban metropolis, the people's relationship with their surroundings and how it affects their daily lives.
Screening takes place on Thursday, March 1 at 7pm in Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Ave.)
