Sleepless in Burlington is a 40-hour film competition in which four teams of 4-6 film students from area colleges create short films over the course of a weekend. Returning to the festival as part of VTIFF’s 30th Anniversary Celebration, the competition provides an excellent showcase for the talent and passion of tomorrow’s filmmakers. The completed films will screen on November 1, the final day of the festival, at 2:00pm and will be adjudicated by a jury of professionals headed by director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed; Jurassic World) and including Eva Sollberger (Stuck in Vermont) and Mark Covino (A Band Called Death). Awards for Best Film, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Audience Choice will be presented and there will be a reception in the Film House Lobby following the event.
