It’s a platform for the creative, an outlet for the passionate, and a bonding experience for your team. The ECAT Film Sprint has been an annual event in Easton, MA since 2010. Will you have the best one? People of all ages and locations are encouraged to participate and attend the screening of all films on June 29th at 7 p.m. All films will also play on ECAT’s public channels and will be available to stream online at eastoncat.org.

All writing, filming, acting, and editing must take place during the 100 hour period. Actors and crew may be selected in advance. Filming with phones is accepted.

All equipment borrowed from ECAT must be returned in the same condition as you received it in. You will require a brief training session on operating and maintaining the equipment. Films will be judged by a panel of judges. The winner will be the film with the highest total score.
