About Crash Cinema

SIFF Crash Cinema is a movie production challenge, taking participants from concept to screening in one day. It is about having fun, making a movie and seeing it on the big screen. The script is developed on the spot by your Crash team (usually 3-6 people) and you design your story based on your team's resources. Come with your own team or find a team at SIFF. Crash Cinema is a bi-monthly and non-competitive challenge.Need more information? Send us an email.
