Over 40 film crews set out over Southeastern Michigan on Saturday morning and Sunday night to write, film and edit their short films. Throughout the event, filmmakers shared behind the scenes images, and on Sunday night made the mad rush to edit and export their movies in time for the 10am drop-off hard deadline.
On October 14, filmmakers, families and friends piled into Towsley Auditorium at Washtenaw Community College to watch the screened movies chosen by the YPSI 24 judging panel, and to see who would take home 2016's prizes, from great swag from the Ypsilanti Running Company, to the grand prize of $1000.
The YPSI 24 Jury has reviewed the submissions to the 2016 YPSI 24-Hour Film Shootout and we are excited to list the Top 25 @ YPSI 24 Playlist. This is the group of entries that will be screened TONIGHT in Towsley Auditorium, located in the Morris Lawrence Building, Although there is no charge for attendance, we do ask that you please RSVP!.
Unfortunately, the time constraints of the Friday program does not permit us to screen all the submissions. All of the submitted films will be unveiled on theYPSI 24 Vimeo channel beginning this Saturday morning, October 15.
