Trebas at 48 Hour Film Fest

A team of students and faculty spend 48 hours making an entire film

On October 13 and 14, Trebas Institute Toronto participated in the 2023 48-Hour Film Project Festival at the Revue Cinema, a movie theatre in Toronto.

Lukas Pidgeon, an audio student, initiated the college’s involvement by bringing it to the attention of Campus Director Mark Ruddy and Academics Manager Kalman Szegvary. Both were equally enthusiastic. A team consisting of Trebas audio and film students dubbed the “Trebasites” was assembled, and the event officially began.

With the assistance of staff and faculty, the team worked throughout the weekend to write, shoot, edit, and mix the film, finishing in time to upload the final project to the festival server before the Sunday night deadline.

The film, titled “Taste the Hit” will be screened in front of a live audience at the Revue Cinema in Toronto on November 4.  If it is selected for an awards category, it could go on to be screened at other 48-hour film project awards ceremonies in cities around the world.
