Screening at the Galaxy – 72 Hour Competition

Given the huge turnout at the 2018 Competition’s screening event, this year’s submissions will be shown in the IMAX theatre. This much larger venue will allow for our enthusiastic community of supporters to share the thrill of seeing the creative work of their friends and families all together in the same space. After the films have been shown, there will be a short break for refreshments in the lobby.  The audience will then be invited to take their seats once more for the presentation of the awards and conclusion of the competition.
