Who We Are

The 50 Hour Slam is an annual film competition and festival open to all filmmakers in the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area. The festival is designed as a way to encourage new and emerging independent artists as well as to challenge the more established filmmakers of the region. The filmmakers will have exactly 50 hours to complete a 3 to 6 minute movie; starting from the writing and development process all the way to the final editing stage. The competitors will be encouraged to experiment and push their talents to create a unique and entertaining piece for their entry.

Thanks for a
Great Kickoff!

The 50 Hour Slam competition has officially concluded for 2024! We had a packed house at KSPS PBS studios on Friday and 29 eager teams headed out into the world that night. We lost some teams along the way, but 23 successfully made it to the finish line Sunday night and submitted their films within the 50 Hour time period.

Congratulations to all the filmmakers who participated in this year’s Slam, and thank you for your continued support of our event.

Don't forget to buy your tickets for the upcoming film festival at the Bing Crosby Theater, June 8th!
