72-Hour Teen Film Challenge

Get ready for the most collaborative, chaotic, and creative weekend of the year! The ACA's annual Teen Film Challenge for 2023 is August 3-6. Grab some lights, cameras, boom mics, or even just a cell phone, and a team of creative friends! Equipped with only a film title and genre, your team will be tasked with making your very own short narrative film in only 72 hours. This competition is open to students between the ages of 12 and 19 in the 12 Midwest states and areas within 500 miles of Cincinnati. Our film screening and award ceremony will be held August 15 at the St. Xavier High School theater. Registration opens in July, so start getting your team together!
