Started in 2005, Pickford Film Center's Guerilla Film Project (GFP) is a 65-hour filmmaking competition for high school students that attracts budding young filmmakers from across the Northwest.
Over President's Day Weekend, teams gather and race against the clock to write, shoot, cut and edit a three minute film in under 65 hours. All film entries are required to use a specific line of dialogue, select props, and a particular type of film shot. Films are then viewed by a jury of film professionals. Prizes are awarded at a filmmaker screening to be held the following Sunday.
