Create. Collaborate. Compete. Cultivate!
These are the core elements that make the 54 Film Fest an exciting opportunity for every filmmaker, from the student to the seasoned professional.

Open to South Dakota Filmmakers.

54 Film Fest is a timed film competition where participating teams take on the challenge of creating a short film all the way from conception to completion within 54 hours. Each film is then judged by industry professionals and featured at the 54 Film Fest Screening and Awards Ceremony.

If you have ever wanted to make a film, this is the perfect chance to start. If you are a student, either highschool or college, your entrance fee is FREE.

It’s a special year for the festival, as we celebrate a decade of inspiring creativity and building community.
