EVENT KICKOFF: Thursday, May 5, 2022
Register your team here: https://www.socapa.org/tapintofilm/
In addition to our competition wide Awards Watch Party, a local NEK screening will be held at the ArtPort immediately following the completion of the 72hrs on Sunday, May 8! Expect local awards and speakers.
After two years online, SOCAPA and Catamount Arts’ much-anticipated-annual Film Slam is going HYBRID with both in person and online components!
We miss the camaraderie of our local teams; the joy of meeting new teams; and the excitement of gathering together as a community to celebrate and watch your films. Therefore, we will be holding an optional, masked and distanced, in person kickoff event at the Catamount Arts 24,000sqf ArtPort! Teams can size up the competition; share war stories; or offer advice to newcomers while celebrating a return to some in-person activities. Attending teams will draw their required genre element live. (Please be familiar with Catamount Art’s Covid-19 Event Policies before planning to attend. Policies are subject to change based on prevailing health conditions.)
As always, the event is FREE to all! But please do consider a donation to Catamount Arts. Catamount had to temporarily close their doors for the first time in their 45 year history of supporting community arts and independent film in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. With your support, Catamount Arts will be here after the crisis, doing their part for our community’s recovery.
Location: ArtPort, Green Mountain Mall, 2000 Memorial Drive, St. Johnsbury, VT
