Weekend-long film challenges have become popular as a way for local filmmakers to maximize their creativity under pressure. Director Travis Mills leveled up and, with his Running Wild Films team, spent each week of 2013 creating a short film, all of which are featured in the 52 Films/52 Weeks Festival on Saturday, February 8.

The impressive endeavor of making 52 films over 52 weeks started with screen-worthy adaptations of short stories in the public domain from authors such as Kate Chopin, Jack London, and H.G. Wells. In addition to a staggering collection of shorts, the fest also peppers in Q&A sessions on various aspects of filmmaking.

The 52 Films/52 Weeks Festival runs from Friday, February 7, through Sunday, February 9, at Mariscos Vuelve A La Vida, 1602 East Roosevelt Street. Opening night on Friday runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday’s program is from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., when an evening-ending party starts. Sunday’s offerings are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Single-day passes range from $15 to $30, while a full festival pass is fittingly $52. Find more info at www.runningwildfilms.com/52films.


Fri., Feb. 7, 7-10 p.m.; Sat., Feb. 8, 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun., Feb. 9, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., 2014
