50 Hour Slam Postponed Until 2021

April 8, 2020
Dear Slammers,

With the COVID-19 pandemic still very much a world wide health crisis, the state of this year’s Slam has become clear. Sadly, the 50 Hour Slam for 2020 is postponed until Spring of 2021.

This was a very hard decision for us (we still haven’t found enough whiskey to console Juan) but we feel it was the best decision to ensure the health and safety of all our participants. The Slam has always been about gathering as a film community to celebrate the artistic talent that makes Spokane special, and we wanted to ensure that was not compromised for our 10th Slam. 

Please keep an eye on our social media for some announcements about how you can still stay involved with the Slam this year and help support the other awesome art events in our community. And please be sure to stay healthy and safe.

Fear not, Slammers, for we are just hitting the pause button. We will gather again. We will celebrate. And we will Slam.

We will see you all in 2021.
