Little Hollywood Shootout – Kanab Utah

Quick-turnaround film competition. Starts at High noon April 4th

The unmistakable scenery of the Kanab area has made this part of southern Utah a favorite destination for filmmakers since the 1930’s. Building on this filmmaking history, the annual “Little Hollywood Shootout,” is taking place at the historic Parry Lodge in Kanab, Utah starting on April 4, 2018. The “shootout” is a quick-turnaround film competition offering filmmakers the challenge of producing a short film with Kanab locations as the backdrop.

Teams will have 49.5 hours to write, direct, edit, and complete a short five-minute film. Film submissions are due at 1:30 pm on Friday, April 6, 2018 either in person or online. The shootout films will then be premiered at a community screening and awards ceremony in the evening on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at the Crescent Moon Theater in Kanab.

Prospective filmmakers of all ages from beginners to veterans are invited to take part in the challenge. Primary filming locations are required to take place in Kane County but editing and post-production can take place at the participants desired location. Two divisions are available for participants with one category intended for novice filmmakers of all ages looking to gain experience and the other division is designed for competitors who have experience in film production.

Community members and participants are strongly encouraged and invited to attend the screening and awards ceremony. For more information about the Little Hollywood Shootout or to register your team, visit www.littlehollywoodshootout.org or call 435-899-0443.
