The 24 Hour Film Slam

image102

We’ve moved the date and time of our annual 24 Hour Film Slam. This year it will be held November 1 & 2, and hosted at Wilson Hall at Monmouth University.


Friday night we’ll reveal a prop, a location, and a line of dialogue. Teams will have exactly 24 hours to write, film, edit, and produce a finished film of less than 2 minutes. The general public is invited back Saturday night to watch the finished products judged in real time…and to judge for themselves which one will win the Audience Choice Award.


This event is free and open to the public. 

Film Slam 2019

Thanks to everyone who participated!

This year 14 teams competed to create an original film incorporating a swing, a fly swatter and the line “I don’t think I can get this to fit!”  They had exactly 24 hours to create a film under two minutes long.


The community gathered on April 6, for a screening at Monmouth University’s Lauren K. Woods Theatre and voted for their favorite film. Judges Robert O’Connor, Victor Zak, and Nick Messina selected the top three films which were automatically accepted into FilmOneFest 2019.

First Place received a $250 Cash Prize. The People's Choice Award  received a $100 Prize.


Thank you to Monmouth University for their support and sponsorship of FilmOneFest.
