On March 24, the University of Kentucky LibrariesMedia Depot and Smart Campus Initiative will kick off the first ever campus-wide “48 Hour Film Race,” an exciting opportunity for students to make a movie – write, shoot, and edit – in just 48 hours. Students from all academic disciplines are encouraged to participate.

Participating students are invited to make a short film with five film elements – genre, character, prop, location, and a line of dialogue – all drawn from a hat over one weekend. This year’s mandatory film element challenges students to film using only their smart devices; phones, iPads, and/or tablets.

The event has two components:

Check-in and Kick-off Meeting: March 24 | 6 pm | Young Library, Media Depot

Film Screening & Award Ceremony: March 31 | 6 pm | Young Library, Auditorium
