The Massachusetts Flash Film Festival is coming to town.
The Belmont Media Center is organizing the whirlwind exercise in speedy storytelling to give local talent a chance to showcase their cinematic skills. Aspiring filmmakers will have just 72 hours between Sept. 22 and Sept. 25 to write, shoot, and edit 4-to-7-minute movies.
Teams will compete for a $500 first prize, to be awarded at a screening Oct. 1 at the Belmont Studio Cinema. Registration ends Friday; interested teams should apply online at www.belmontmedia.org. The festival’s competition will be limited to 20 teams.
