Lo-fi Sci-fi 48 Hour Film Challenge

What Happened?

On a Friday evening in late August 2012, seven teams gathered at the Site 3 coLaboratory. Each team randomly chose dialogue, a prop, and music, and then were turned loose onto the city with the task of creating a lo-fi sci-fi short to be screened only a few days later.

What Next?

We’ll be presenting the shorts over the next several months on our website, organizing salons for those interested in the lo-fi sci-fi genre, posting relevant articles, and ultimately hosting another Lo-fi Sci-fi 48 Hour Film Challenge.
