9th Annual 24-Hour Festival

9th Annual 24-Hour Festival

Saturday, September 12, 2015 at 8:00 p.m.

Presentation and Awards in Parking Garage 2 near the Arts Complex

Produced by Barry Cavin

Sponsored by Gene and Lee Seidler

The 9th Annual 24-Hour Festival is FGCU's annual melee of time-sensitive art. 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 completed within a 24-hour period. For each of the past eight years, students at FGCU have met in a creative competition that draws from their unique capacity for procrastination and their tremendously dynamic creativity. At 6 p.m. on Friday, September 11th, students are given a list of items that have to appear in their film, stage play, visual or performance art, dance, or music piece, and at 6 p.m. on Saturday the 12th, they submit their finished product. At 8 p.m., the public is invited to view the results, which will be as unexpected as they are entertaining. Due to the popularity of this event, it is no longer able to be held at TheatreLab, but will instead be in Parking Garage 2 at the other end of the Arts Complex parking lot. Walls can no longer contain this event!
