AAM Summer Series Presents: 24-Hour Video Race

unnamed 1

The Academy Art Museum is pleased to present the 24-Hour Video Race in partnership with the Chesapeake Film Festival and organized by Francisco Salazar. This event is included in the AAM Summer Series programming and is free and open to the public.

Filmmakers of all ages (either as a team or solo) will have the chance to create a one-to-seven-minute video that will be screened at the Academy Art Museum on Friday, July 29. Films must incorporate a word and theme that will be provided to competitors via email on Friday, July 22 at 5 pm. Budding and experienced filmmakers will have just 24 hours to shoot, edit, and submit a video by the deadline of Saturday, July 23 at 5 pm.

A panel of judges including Cid Collins Walker (Festival Director) and Martin Zell (Board of Trustees President) of the Chesapeake Film Festival will choose the Best in Show for two categories— Student/Family (at least 50% of the filmmaking team are under 18) and Adult—in addition to a People’s Choice Award. Best in Show winners will receive two (2) Festival Passes to see all films in the LIVE Chesapeake Film Festival for 2022 and a Waiver Fee Code to enter their film for consideration in the festival for 2023.
