707 Film Fest

Once a year, Hope Community Church hosts a film fest.

Teams are given a genre, a mandatory prop, a mandatory line of dialogue and two weeks to make a 5 minute film.

Then we get all fancied up and pack the sanctuary for a hilarious night of film watching and award giving.  This is especially exciting because we are pretty much the most non-fancy congregation you will ever meet in normal life.

It is one of my favorite times of year.  I’m seriously in awe of people’s creativity and talent and all around ridiculousness.  Well done, folks.  Well done.

Despite it being one of my favorite events of the year, I have yet to actually make a film.  Perhaps one day.  Or perhaps I will just continue on being a dedicated fan.  Time will tell.

Anyways, here are some of this year’s entries!  (I’m putting my favorite 4 first, but you should watch them all, because I have way more than 4 favorites, and you probably will too if you watch them).

ok, there are so many really great ones that aren’t here.  because they are punks and haven’t shared their videos on the interwebs.

Thanks Hope, for being awesome!
