Print

Sign-ups begin today and films will be screened April 30

BETHLEHEM, PA – You’ve done puzzles, you’ve cleaned closets and you’ve watched absolutely everything the streaming services have to offer. Now, it’s your turn to create something for the screen. ArtsQuest is challenging the community to make short movies during the quarantine that it will broadcast April 30, 7:30 p.m., on ArtsQuest@Home as part of its ‘at Home’ Quarantine Film Challenge. Those interested must register for free here between April 20, noon, and April 24, 7 p.m. All registered participants will then meet via Zoom April 24, 7:30 p.m., to go over the rules. The biggie?: all movies must be shot inside wherever you are quarantined to make it make it fun, safe and challenging for all. Quarantine Film Challenge submission categories are ages 6-12, ages 13-17, ages 18-plus and families (meaning a group of related people of varying ages staying in the same home.) Filming will begin April 24, 8 p.m., and all films must be submitted by April 26 at 7:59 p.m.   In addition to screening everyone’s homemade masterpieces, April 30 ArtsQuest will give out awards in several categories including: • Best in Show • Best Pet Cameo • Best Costume Design That Still Involves Sweatpants • The OMG They Still Have Toilet Paper Award • Best Self Haircut • Worst Corona-Related Pun • Best Performance by a Sleeping Parent • Best Supporting Loaf of Bread For more information on the 48-Hour ‘at Home’ Quarantine Film Challenge, CLICK HERE.
