The Insomnia Film Festival is Back

The Insomnia Film Festival is back—and while the world sleeps, you could be making film history. Calling all high school and college filmmakers.

At 9:00 a.m. on October 13, you’ll get the green light: The requirements for the 2007 Insomnia Film Festival will be posted at, and your team will have 24 hours to write, cast, shoot, edit, score, and upload your movie.

Once the films are in, your friends, family, and adoring fans will be able to watch them online and rate their favorites. The 25 entries with the highest rating on November 9 at 12:00 a.m. EST will be screened by industry professionals, including Barry Sonnenfeld, James Mangold, and Nora Ephron.

If your film is the biggest hit with either the public or the pros, each member of your team will receive a MacBook Pro, Final Cut Studio 2, Logic Studio, and Shake so you can get started on that first sequel. How’s that for a Hollywood ending?
