With a film competition and more, First Friday spotlights the cinema in March

First Friday seeks out local filmmakers for its First Friday Film Competition.

Focusing the festival spotlight on the cinema this month, First Friday initiates its first film competition Friday night.

Interested local filmmakers are invited to submit three-to-five-minute shorts that speak to the contest’s “Secrets of First Friday” theme, and all footage must be exclusively shot at the March installment of the monthly arts and culture festival.

Filmmakers then have a week to edit and package their shorts, as submissions must be received by March 14. Entries can be submitted to contact@firstfridaylasvegas.com.

Have a great idea for a short, but don’t have the technical know-how? Enter Clark County Library’s TechArt Studio program, which will be in the Arts District Friday night to teach filmmaking basics, as well as several ways to produce a short.

And the festival’s film fun doesn’t end there. First Friday will create a makeshift “drive-in” at the corner of Casino Center and Colorado, complete with concessions, grass lawn and a screening of the classic movie-musical Grease.
