6th Annual Single-Take Film Challenge

Arts & Culture

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY APR 30, 2021

1917. Rope. Birdman. Victoria. Russian Ark. Lost in London. All these films tell their complete stories in one continuous, uninterrupted take. Or at least they give that illusion. The Sarasota-based Single-Take Challenge, however, is only for filmmakers attempting the "real thing". "We think creating a single-take is an unequalled exercise in filmmaking.  It tests and benefits everyone involved, in front of and behind the camera" says festival director Mark Troy. 2021 marks the 6th anniversary of the Challenge, to be held both online and live at a theater in Sarasota. "Covid forced us to pivot to online-only last year, but there were aspects of that that we liked. So this year we'll have the best of all worlds" according to Troy. Filmmakers interested in creating and submitting their one-shot masterpieces have until August 15. The awards and screening ceremony will take place the weekend of October 8-10.
