Break Out Film Challenge Kicks Off Thursday, October 1st!

**The Break Out Challenge is closed for registration.  Please check back here for screening details!**


This challenge is designed to get Arizona filmmakers out into the larger community and the prize is FREE submissions to film festivals around the country.  Last year we gave out nearly 20 free submissions- it’s a great opportunity.

What is it?

A longer challenge designed to showcase our teams’ talent. You will submit two lines of dialogue as a team. At kickoff, you will receive a mystery prop, and two line choices from other teams’ submissions. Using the prop and one of the lines, you and your team then have about a month to write, shoot, edit, and generally go crazy with filmmaking!
