On November 15, 2013 the Idaho Forty Eight Hour Film Competition and Festival (known more commonly as “i48”) will be celebrating its ten years of showcasing independent Idaho filmmaking with a special “Best of the Best of i48” screening and concert at the Egyptian Theatre. We will be screening all films that won the “Best Film” award in the Open Category from the past ten years, as well as five (5) additional deserving “Director’s Picks.” After the screening, the audience will cast their votes and crown a “Best of the Best” champion. The winning filmmaker team wins bragging rights and an appropriately gaudy trophy.
To round out the evening, i48 is excited to announce that following the films we have partnered with Duck Club Presents to offer live musical entertainment on the Egyptian Theatre stage by one of Boise’s favorite bands, Hillfolk Noir.
i48 is thrilled to have become a part of the cultural fabric of the Treasure Valley and values our role in the community. In that spirit, we will be using proceeds from this celebration to donate $250 to each of the following non-profits that do such good and amazing work: the Boise Bicycle Project, Surel’s Place, and Life’s Kitchen. Following the screening, we will invite our audience to vote for which of those three (3) non-profits should get the “Audience Choice” award and an additional donation of $250 (for a total of $500.
Please join us for a night of local films, music, charity and most of all, to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of Idaho’s filmmaking community.
Tickets are $10 and available at the Egyptian Theatre box office and online.
