7th Annual 24-Hour Festival

September 7, 2013

September 6 at 6:00 p.m.:  Annoucement of theme and elements to registered teams

September 7 at 8:00 p.m.:  Public reveal of submissions

Cost:  Free

FGCU's annual melee of time-sensitive art is back again for the seventh consecutive year.  Creative and sleep-deprived students churn up the minutes in a mad race against the clock to produce the best stage play, film, music, or artwork completely within 24 hours.  For each of the past six years, students at FGCU have meet in a creative competition that draws from their unique capacity for procrastination and their tremendously dynamic creativity.  At 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 6, the students are given a list of items that have to appear in their film, stage play, visual or performance art, dance or music.  At 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 7, the students submit their finished product.  The public is invited to see the results at 8:00 p.m. on September 7, in an event that is as unexpected as it is entertaining.

Winners receive a $500 scholarship in each of the creative categories.  Each year we have a distinguished panel of judges to choose one artist or team to receive the scholarship for best film, best play, or best live performance.
