Fischgaard Short Film Project 2020
The Fischgaard Short Film Project takes place once a year in Aberdeen, South Dakota. It’s mission is to motivate independent filmmakers and to enhance film as art in South Dakota. During the competition, filmmaking teams create a movie – writing, shooting and editing a four to seven-minute film – all in one weekend.
It is open to professionals and amateurs alike. The films are adjudicated and awards are handed out following the public viewing.
Public viewing Sunday, February 16th, 6:30 pm at the Capitol Theatre.
This year’s event occurs from February 14-16, 2020. The filmmakers’ kickoff event (where participating teams learn what the required elements are) is Friday, February 14th, 5:30 pm at the Red Rooster Coffee House.
The public viewing is Sunday, February 16th at the Capitol Theatre. Tickets to the public viewing are sold at the door beginning at 5:30 pm for $5 per person. Doors to the auditorium open at 6:00 pm.
