The Chilliwack Independent Film Festival is launching our new 48 HOUR FILM COMPETITION, Friday the 15th of November to Sunday the 17th, as YOU become the filmmaker.

Form teams (or we can assign you one) and make a film with whatever means you have in just 48 hours. With prizes, tickets and more up for grabs, each film will be screened at the opening of the festival Friday the 22nd of November. Teams will also be eligible for awards at the closing ceremony.

Team members must each pay the $10 entry (which includes society membership) to register for the competition.
