West Chester University, Cheyney University, the West Chester Film Festival, and West Chester Together are sponsoring the Third Annual 48HR DubC Film Race (48HRFR). The 48HRFR is a 48-Hour Student Video Competition open to all currently registered West Chester University, Cheyney University, and WCU Philly campus undergraduate students. Student teams of one or more students will produce a 3-5 minute film– write it, shoot it, edit it, and produce it... all in just 48 hours! Come join us on April 5, 2019 to draw for your film genre, a prop from our West Chester community partners, and a line of dialogue then... GO! You do not need previous film experience to form or join a team. Tech is ready for check out or produce and edit on your own phone. Films are all judged by an international panel of film industry experts and winners at our April 25, 2019 awards reception teams can walk away with cash and prizes including the chance to have your film screened at the West Chester Film Festival, which qualifies you for an IMDB page.
The following rules apply to all participating groups/teams.
Congratulations to 'The Honors System' team (Michael Nangle, Brendan Lordan, Mark Gutierrez, Courtney Rothman, Cameron Ducey) for their top ranked film "Too Late."
Our registration is moving online. Please visit this page soon to register your team or request a team match.
Our organizing body includes dozens of students along with a dedicated staff and "Race Coordinators".
Interested in making a film? Want to see the products of our past film makers and winners? Click the buttons below for links to our finalized and submitted films. Each film identifies which film elements (genre, prop from our West Chester community partners, and line of dialogue) was drawn by the team as well as a full cast and production team. You will see small and large teams from across all majors and experience levels.
Each final film submission is qualified for judging from our below international panel. We have partnered with the 15th Annual International West Chester Film Festival and the WCU College of Arts & Humanities along with our community partners to award our top films with cash, prizes, and recognition.
Awards and recognitions will be presented as part of the red carpet screening. A team representative must be present to receive the awards and associated prizes – and to chat up our judging panel and film industry representatives at the elegant April 25, 2019 event.
