SpeakeasyShorts is a new type of film competition—a collaboration between filmmakers and storytellers. Ten filmmaking teams have only 5 days to write, shoot, edit-and screen a film based on stories from ten local storytellers. The kicker: none of the teams know anything about the stories before they are presented.
On November 14, filmmaking teams will discover which story they have been paired with — and have five days to create a short film (less than 8 minutes) based on a true tale. The films premiere November 22 — the audience votes for their favorites — and one team walks away with a $1,000 cash prize!
